  2. Bryan,
    You will always be in my heart forever, you are a man among men who quietly walked through life helping others without hesitation, never asking for anything in return. Your good nature will live on in all of our hearts forever and your presence will be amongst the many people you have selflessly helped as well as touched as you passed through all of our lives. You have suffered much throughout your battle but as always you have landed in heaven on your feet once again with the Father. Will always miss our cigars and coffee, but most of all your friendship my Brother. Rest now for you are with Him.
