Condolences

RIP Uncle Bri - Love you!!!!!!

So sorry for your loss. Cousin Brian and I grew up together in Independence, Iowa until he moved to Ohio. I have such good memories of Brian. We started to school together and had lots of fun. I have such good memories of family get togethers and especially the 4th of July's we spent at Uncle Georges house to watch the fireworks. Bri and I would always be glued to each other. He was a trickster back then. I know his family will miss him. Rest in peace Brian. Till we meet again on the other side.

BJ was a sweet, caring, but ornery man! I loved that he always had a smile or hug for me. He knew what to say to make me feel better if I was down or how to make me laugh! He was my daughter's "legion grandpa" and used to pull quarters out of her ears, hide them in chairs for her to find and send her back to me all hopped up on a coke and candy bar of her choice! He was the one who would slip you a drink when he thought you needed one, or a twenty if he knew you needed that! BJ didn't wait to be asked, he just gave. I will miss him and my heart and prayers are with his family.

So sorry for your loss.My mother was your grandpa George sister, Doris we went there lot growing up. The last time I seen your Dad was Aunt Dorothy funeral when they came up to Chicago. We had the best time catching up. I'm sure he shall be missed but is now reunited with other loved ones. Sincerely Edie
