Oh Brian, as I sit here and watch the birds in our feeder and wait for the chickadees to show up I think about you. I never stop thinking of you. I miss you so much. We were so cheated of our future together, I know I’ll see you again one day but I’d rather have you here with me. I wish I could go back to that Sunday before we lost you and have more time in that day. I will keep you in my heart and mind at all times and keep watching our birdies and listen to them sing. I love and miss you so much. See you again one day.❤️

So very-very sad to hear of Brians passing. Life is so very short and leaving behind family and friends is heart breaking. Wish we could be there, such a horrible time for loss and grieving. He was an amazing person who enjoyed life and family.

Heartfelt prayers for comfort and strength to all of Brian’s loved ones. I’ve only known Brian from seeing him working around the courthouse, but our brief conversations always made me happy to have seen him. His work restoring the sculptured ceilings and walls of our now 100 year old courthouse is remarkable and beautiful. And his music jamming from the scaffolding, early before we opened, made me happy to arrive. I’m sure I’ll think of him around that place enjoying his skilled craftsmanship and I believe you will all see him again one day.

I Am terribly saddened to here of Brian’s passing. I considered Brian good friend and union brother ever since we served Together as apprentices back in the late 80s. The world needs more people like Brian and is at a great lose without him. Rest In Peace Brian. David A. Horn
