Brett, I don’t even know what to say. I broke down with the news of you leaving us. You were one of the most genuine humans I’d ever met. You never cared what others thought and you would do anything for those you cared about. So many memories to think of, but I will forever miss your Woodstock stories.
I ended up with a horrid cold this week and I was devastated that I couldn’t be there to celebrate you yesterday. I thought of you all day. You will truly be missed. Say high! to everyone up in rock n roll hippy heaven! Sleep well. ✌🏻❤️🌻🎵
