My deepest sympathy to Perry, Chris and families. Your dad was a wonderful man, a great neighbor and friend. As a wise friend told me, our parents never really leave us. I'm sure Brian will continue to be with you and guide you in the days ahead. May he rest in peace, reunited with Janet, David and Jeannette.
