I really enjoyed getting to know Brian when he took my microbiology class last fall, before he got too sick to be in school. He was a delight as a student: charming, kind, smart and always ready with an interesting perspective. Wishing for peace and comfort for all who loved Brian.

Brian was my greatest friend - since high school we've strummed guitar, swapped books quotes and poems, and have done things centered around writing for a long time. We wrote poetry and had set out to write some good haiku...we did that. We'd take long drives for the sake of art, or just to see something cool. There was a long stretch when every Friday Night meant dinner and a hangout, with him, Amy, Evan, Lily, and Owen - okay - the hangout part was with him and Amy mostly, lol, but those were really special times. They all had that wonderful sense of humor and easy disposition that Brian had, so even the atmosphere was hospitable... I was proud of him ...he just knew what it meant to have everything in life and he showed me important things about how to live it!

I met Brian as a teenager. We both had moved to Murphysboro with our parents and siblings. We lived in the same neighborhood and rode the same school bus,we were good friends. He helped me with Algebra homework often. I asked him too often and sometimes I would bribe him with $ to get him to help me.😊 I have ran into Brian a few times in our adult life at the ballfields or local businesses. He introduced me to his beautiful family and we caught up on what was happening with our parents and siblings. Brian is a big chunk of my childhood memories in Murphysboro. One thing I remember was all the neighborhood kids would play outside games in the summer evenings and my parents would always make me be home by the time the street lights came on. Lol We all had great fun as kids together. You won't ever be forgotten Brian!

I met Brian in 2017 when he and a friend drove to Austin, Texas from Carbondale for a haiku-centered poetry reading I was hosting. It was a joy to meet him and spend time with him. My condolences to the family. May his memory always be for a blessing.
