Madelyn, Erin, Carol and family. I cannot begin to comprehend your grief and pain at this time. I'm so very sorry to learn of Brian's most untimely passing. I remember him as a fantastic 13-year old kid, shooting hoops and doing well at school. By all accounts he became a magnificent man and father. I am so sorry for your loss. Lyndon.
