I am Brian's cousin. My mother Dorothy (Aunt Dot) and Reg are brother and sister. I had such a nice visit with Brian at Reg and Mary's 50th anniversary. I was so saddened to hear of his sudden passing. My deepest sympathy to Karen and their family. May he rest in peace and let a perpetual light shine upon him.
