    I am so sorry to learn of Brian’s passing but I know he was in a lot of pain and is in a much better place now. Terry and Brian are now together pain and PD free! They were such a great couple and I know they will be missed by their friends and family. God bless you all!

    Time goes by and we lose track of people. I remember both Brian and Terry from high school, both great people. Sorry to hear of their passings.
