    I am sorry for your loss. I know you loved your son very much. I remember may discussions we had and how you spoke of him as a concerned and proud Dad. Below is an old Irish blessing. I hope we can talk soon.

    Death leaves a heartache
    no one can heal;
    Love leaves a memory no
    one can steal

    Brian, I am pleased that I popped in for one of my visits last week. I can still see your smiling face in my minds eye. With my antics I could always bring a series of smiles to your face at the expense of whom ever was there with you. I will miss your kind and noble character and will feel cheated that you were taken from us at this time in your inevitably too short life. Some may struggle to put your passing into perspective. They’ll dwell on your MD and the struggles you are now free from. For me and Judy … we’ll remember the dignity and strength you and your loved ones so openly displayed.Your mom and dad showed how truly precious life can be. You maintained your dignity through this long ordeal. I have become a better person through these years through having know you and by seeing the strength of your character shine through your life’s situation. God bless you and your family Bob & Judy
