  6. Sorry for your loss of Bryan, I didn’t know him that well but every time I seen him with my great nephew Layton he was always happy to be with him and that made Layton so happy . He always talked about his daddy. He looked like him so much and Bryan will live on through Layton. He was too young to be gone already but I believe he’s gone to heaven to make a kingdom for you all and Layton. I’ve seen a lot of signs from my clients who passed away that there is live after this and I believe Bryan is there waiting for you all. R.I.P. Bryan until you meet again with Layton and your family.

  11. Brian had the BIGGEST HEART, he’d help anybody out whether it be opening & holding doors for people especially the elderly,if he seen someone needed a hand whether he knew them or not he’d offer to help. If a friend or family member was in trouble whatever the situation be..Who ya going to call? Bri for sure..when kids were around guaranteed Brian would be joking and depending what they were doing he’d be playing too. Brian had a smile ear to ear everytime he’d stop by my place with Layton❤. Gone to soon that’s for sure..

    I will never forget growing up and running around like the crazy kids we all were, those were the best times in the parkway!
    And even when we got older and didn’t see each other around for periods of time, when we did it was like no time had passed at all, you were always so happy and there with a big hug when we saw each other! You will be greatly missed my friend.

  23. Days long games of monopoly, non alcoholic frozen margarita mix eaten with spoons from little tubs in your grandmas freezer, your cat that slept on a top edge of that open door near the entrance to your house, first time horror films on Halloween, your grandpa teaching us how to punch a guy, adventures building endless forts in the ditches by the train tracks, backyard roman candles from my parents old green machine, sitting on top of the barn roof at 45 tossing shingles, bonfires, experiments with fire, planting trees, oriole parkway money schemes grass cutting/snow shoveling buisnesses, bottle drives, your fear of ants, finding water snakes and spiders and baby bluejays, getting chased, the years spent fixing up and painting bicycles, the park program summers, everyday street hockey, jumping off the roof at arc industries, endless shooting hoops in the driveway, climbing trees, exploring the corn and the soy fields, getting stuck in the mud intentionally, go cart discoveries, water treatment discoveries, collecting rocks at the tracks, endless training of various forms of marshall arts, getting caught swimming at the wheels, birthday parties, the pinery, bus 52 to indian creek, exploring old buildings, digging holes with shovels in the park, stone war fights in the street, secret traps and hiding spaces and endless conversation. Those twelve early years were the formative years.

    I think unconsciously i’ve spent so much of my adult life trying to re-live the past wonder that was growing up in oriole parkway with you. You were my best friend.

    I moved. We lost touch. We went to different schools and lived in different cities and moved on to live different lives: a personal regret for me. Its been 20 years since we’ve last spoke but i still think about growing up with you BV.

    You will be greatly missed and forever in my thoughts.

  29. ♡♡B♡♡, I can’t even explain how much you mean to me and the amount I think of what happened and what could of happened. I miss you so much. You have been gone a year now and so much has changed for me and I wish you were here to see it. As you knew I was pregnant the night we last seen each other and I had my daughter on August 9th. I named my daughter Bri-lynn… after you. I love you B and will always remember that it’s because of you that I didn’t get in that passenger seat that night. Thank you for giving me the life I have today.

    My deepest sympathy for your son and other family.
