Brian, You have always been my special love since I first heard you sing Were You There When They Crucified My Lord on a Good Friday service. I loved your mom and the more I got to know you the more I loved you. It was not because I loved Margie so much either. You were a special guy that could make my heart dance every time you sang or just smiled. We will meet again and I hope I walk thru those hate to your beautiful voice. Love you and Margie I love you am I am just a few blocks away.

Margie, Brian was a special person with the wonderful gifts of music and humor that he shared with us all.. I really enjoyed all the times playing in the band with him. He was not shy about expressing his feelings-he was the only friend that ended most conversations with me with a "love you man!" I'll miss him.
