Brendan made a lasting impression on me the last time I had the pleasure of speaking with him. At that time I hadn't seen him since he was a young man. I was so impressed at what a wonderful, kind, caring and articulate man he had become. Forever in our hearts.
With fond memories.

It’s too hard to choose a single memory as we carry so many moments together that I cherish. Brenden is truly a unique, gifted and incredibly sweet soul. A rare one who wasn’t afraid to be himself. Our humor together was very particular and irreplaceable. My life has forever changed without him in it. I lost a part of myself, but as long as I’m alive I’ll live it out with him in mind. I’ve been blessed to have had been graced with his presence. Our time on Earth may have came to an end but he will always be close and dear to my heart. I know he’ll make just as beautiful of an angel as he did a brother. I love you always. ~Sis
