I'm crying too now and I didn't even know Brian. You have obviously been very blessed with his friendship. I wish you peace at this hard time!

"I won't say don't cry, for not all tears are bad." A quote from Gandalf in Tolkien's "Return of the King." (I'm such a geek!)


Oh Stephanie, I am so very sorry. Your tribute to him and your everlasting friendship is beautiful. I, myself am crying like a baby. Take all the time you need.

It's shocking how quickly he passed after we learned he was so ill. Brian's hardly left my mind all week, I thought we had more time too. It is a real loss to this world, Brian leaving it.


Oh, Stephanie, I am soo soooo sorry for your loss. I know what a hole it can leave, and I know that feeling of "I thought we had more time". It hurts, but you have lots of good memories to cherish, so you can hold on to those.


Stephanie, I am blessed by Brian and now this beautiful tribute. Thank you from my heart.

Stephanie, Brian was not only my nephew, he was my friend. Thank you for this wonderful tribute, you have beautifully turned many the feelings I have in my heart into words. Those who knew Brian understand; those who never got the chance to meet him, missed knowing one of the greatest people ever. There is no way to express how much he will be missed.

So sorry for your loss but it is so great that you both stayed friends and so many memories you have.

I am so sorry for your loss. Many people only hope to find a friendship as long lasting as that.


Thank you for such a beautiful tribute to my nephew. He was one of the funniest people I will ever know in my lifetime. I am sure he and dad are sitting there at dad's bar drinking some of dad's "gourmet" beers.

I am so sorry for your loss. Brian was lucky to have a good friend like you. What a lesson for us all, never take each others' presence for granted. xoxo

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful tribute you have given him. He was blessed to have you as a friend. A big Hug from me to you.

Oh honey, I'm so so so so sorry for your loss of a dear friend. This is a beautiful tribute and absolutely heartbreaking at the same time. Brian sounds like the most wonderful friend you could ever ask for or imagine. He was a gift, and my heart breaks for you and yours, as you are right. It isn't fair.


I'm sorry for the loss of your friend. He sounded like a soulmate. You're right — we always think we have more time.

Maggie Szafranski

Prayers for you and Brian's family. I lost my best friend almost 4 years ago. It just leaves an awful empty feeling inside.


Oh Stephanie, what sad news. I am so sorry. What a beautiful friendship you shared. My heart is with you.

I am so sorry about your friend. It is so hard to lose close friends and at this time of the year it is even more difficult. It is good you were able to blog about your wonderful friendship... You have many memories to make you smile.


Hi my dear. Just finished reading your wonderful tribute to Brian, and it made me cry, too. I didn't realize how much you and Brian had seen each other over the years. I know you are going to miss him terribly. I loved your reminiscence about him being able to belch "Jeremiah!" Do you remember that Brian's parents, your dad, and I used to dance to that song and others in our basements after drinking your grandpa's homemade wine? (When you guys were supposed to be upstairs asleep!) Many, many years ago!
Brian was a great kid and a great guy, and the world will miss him. I too am so sorry that he is gone, and my heart is sore for you. I so wish we lived closer so I could be there with you!

Rosemary Dempster

I don't know why, but my original comment did not post. I am so, so sorry about your friend. He sounds the kind of friend we all long for. Prayers sent to you both.
