My little brother passed away last night. Dave, I and his girlfriend Tammy were with him. D held him in his arms while he took his last breaths then finally went to sleep.
I want to thank you all for the love and caring support, the prayers, the positive healing thoughts and shrine trips that have extended for Bry and to our family this past while. It means more than you could imagine.
There's much for us to take care of and arrangements to be made and thankfully Dave his taking the lead.
Oh Jackie Im so very sorry. I know your pain first hand.And if there is ANYTHING you need Im here for you. His pain and suffering have ended.He is soaring free and easy. He is whole again. I love you and your loss is all our loss. Please try to take care of yourself during this time of sorrow. Dont worry about the forum we have it covered.Bobbi
I'm so sorry Jackie. Your younger brother Dave was such a young man (age 48). And, he gave so much to others. re: His wife and her special kids. Like you said, a big bear. And, a bear size heart that goes with him. So sorry he was taken so young….
Of course we must look for a positive. People will be in pain never seeing Brian again. But Brian has finally passed to a state of oblivion to pain and discomfort So I save all my sorrow to the good folk who knew him so well. I sincerely share you pain Jackie
Jackie and Dave, so sorry for the loss of such a wonderful man. The world will be emptier without him, but his memory will be living on in those who knew and loved him so well.
Anything I can do for you, just ask. I am trying to do what you asked before and be upbeat and pass along good spirits and positive thoughts. This will honor what Bryan lived by and hopefully pass along his message of love and hope. God is taking care of Bryan now and he is at peace.
Prayers continue for your family's hearts to be at rest. God loves you and so do I.

Just managed to log on, only to find this sad, sad news. Gwen and I send our heartfelt sympathy to you, Jackie, and to to Brian's nearest and dearest. So sad when his future held so much promise. May he rest in peace, and may God hold the hand of those who held him dear.
Jackie planned a beautiful memorial service for Bryan. There was a slideshow showing him in his different stages of life with family and friends. At the end of the service there was an opportunity for people that new him to tell a story about him. It was very evident just how kind and caring he was when the stories were told. When Jackie came back from the cemetery, I was waiting for her when she came in to the reception and when she came over to me I gave her a huge hug and told her it was from all of us. This made her sob even harder but I really felt that she was pleased to see someone from the forum. Thank you all for letting me represent you today. You have all given me so much and it was the least I could do. I also met Jackie's son Ben who was here from Atlanta but unfortunately Stacey was at the airport and ready to board the plane with him when she become very ill and could not come with him.
