You were stubborn and hard headed. You were a great lineman and loved what you did. 24 years together. We didn’t have the best marriage but for many years we loved each other and had the most perfect baby girl together. She got all of our best genes. I’m sorry you are gone and your family will miss you forever. Happy Father’s Day Brian and May you have your peace in heaven. Go find my brother and y’all can watch over Hali from the sky.

The first time I met you and Stan, y’all walked me around on Pepper. I thought y’all were the best cousins I could have. You and Stan welcomed me into your group of friends when we moved here. Y’all watched out for me in school. We talked about you having my boys help with chopping wood. And we talked about how families come first, and that we should all have a reunion like our grandparents did. I’m sure you’re with them in Heaven and they’re glad to have you. I’ll see you again one day. Rest In Peace, Brian.
