All those years ago when Bob introduced me to his family, you and the whole family welcomed me with open arms and love. When Bob passed away and I came for a visit, you told me that I would always be welcomed and part of the family. I remember those words whenever I think of Bob. I always regret not being able to connect with you and Elda when I was in Boston several years ago. Be at peace, love Lee

My uncle Billy was one of the kindest people I knew. He was always interested in my business exploits and wanted to always help. He visited his mom (Nana) at my parents house every week, even as a young boy he wanted me to sit and talk with the adults, he never made me feel like a little boy but rather as a family member. They would tell stories of the ole’ days in Lynn and laugh about what the boys did. A lot of what I know about being a “Brewster” came from Uncle Billy. Later in life we would sit and have coffee at Lynn Ladder and talk about my job sites.

Uncle Billy you are a great person and a good friend. You contributed much to my success in business and I love you and look forward to seeing you again. You are already missed by so many. I hope I can someday touch so many lives in such a positive way and be a father who is loved by his children as much as you were.

Your friend and nephew,

Jeffrey Wright

My brother Bill, Will always remember the few times we met for lunch and the many times you came to visit our Mom at my home. One special memory I have as a young kid about 8 years old was that early morning that you came home from Alaska. Standing there in your uniform I was so proud of my big brother. Ma and everyone were sleeping when I heard you come in the back door. You didn’t want to wake her up . You wanted to surprise her. We all were so happy you were home. What a loving and caring brother you are. Rest In Peace.
Love you always. Your sister Dottie
