    I remember when we were young and I would spend my vacation time with Brian and his family we would go to his motocross races and I remember thinking what a cool guy he was and how he had such an adventurous spirit and those were some of the best childhood memories I have. He was always very nice and sweet to me and I loved his sense of humor he had the unique ability to mimic numerous accents and he would have me cracking up. He was so fun to hang out with . even though I have not seen him in many years he has been with me in my heart and mind he certainly made my life better by being in it ! RIP cuz love you!!!! I’ll see you on the other side!!
