Where to start, is it the maiden voyage of the fake birch bark canoe at Beltzville or as a Cowboys fan rooting for the Giants to win the Super Bowl against Buffalo as the field goal kick went wide right. Of course there's the time when I held your ankles (and your beer) as you nailed the last shingle on the precarious perch of the roof on 17th street. So many great memories I will always hold dear. You will always be with me, love you brother.

Brian the man the legend walks into a room with a few words lights it up with joy and laughter. You found the love of your life, Janice, and became a wonderful husband and dad, all while you blazed a trail of love and friendship wherever you were. Janice Paul, Nan and Candace may your hearts heal with the warmth of his memories. I love you all.May the road rise up to meet you.May the wind be always at your back.May the sun shine warm upon your face;the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand. Slainte Love always,Kerry O’Brien
