Dear Cheryl and Lisa,
Aunt Marnie called me on Wednesday and gave me the news that Brian had passed away. Our whole family is so sad to hear this news. I love the photo of hm and his mischievous smile. We loved coming down to Hockessin to visit you all and having dinner. Our condolences to his wife and children. He was gone too soon.
