Yesterday our beloved Brian left us. As I try to type this, I realize that no words can describe how much that hurts or how hard it is to imagine my world without him after 20 years. There were ups and downs, things weren’t always perfect, but he was my person and my heart. He gave me three beautiful babies that brought him incredible joy. They will walk through life’s milestones and miss him. Birthdays, holidays, graduations, weddings. I hope they can feel him on those days and know how much he loved them. He loved hard and generously and if you were his friend, you were his friend for life. I will feel forever blessed that I was loved by him.
Brain was a lovely person to be around; he was funny, optimistic, intriguing, and knowledgeable. His friends characterized him as someone who was always up for a joke.
He was an epitome of what it is to be a great person. He was incredibly compassionate and had a calming presence; he touched the hearts of many people.
