Aunt Mary
My heart aches for you and all you have had to endure. Every time I talked with Brian he spoke of the love he had for you the girls and of course Kita. You where his world and he appreciated everything you did.
I’m also blessed to have been able to get so close to him over the last few years. His smile lit up any room he entered and his laughter was music to your ears.
My the love of god your friends and family help you now and forever.
All my love
Carla

Mary, we’re so sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. Our hearts go out to you in prayer. As we drive we see the sun setting and I can’t help but think how the rays are the Son’s open arms embracing his beloved Brian. It wasn’t by chance that we spoke on Wednesday, spurring us to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for Brian; Our Lord was preparing a place for him. Know you remain in our prayers. God bless you, Mary.

Brian & I shared childhood memories at Easter. He shared how he enjoyed coming to our home because of the swimming pool and I enjoyed visits at his home because of the horses. It was such a blessing that Brian was feeling well enough to join us at Easter & I feel blessed for that one last hug. He will be missed. My thoughts & prayers are with you, Aunt Mary. I love you more than words can express.
