What can I say? I am truly saddened by this. My sympathies go out to Carol, Donald, Nancy and Charles. Brian was a true fiend. I will always remember him. He always had a great and positive outlook on things. This and the good times and memories that I had with him are what will keep me going.

What can I say about Brian? He was my dear friend for 37 years. We met at JFK junior high school - a place we called "Jail For Kids", but actually loved. Brian and I truly grew up together, and I am a better person for it. I was lucky enough to know him well and we kept in touch with each other after he moved to Florida so long ago. Brian was very much his own person and had a very strong set of values. Everyone that met Brian remembers him: from his closest friends to the checkout person at the supermarket. Those of you that knew him personally know exactly what I mean! He had a unique personality that was truly memorable. He couldn't go anywhere, or do anything, without a comment that would make the person he was with smile. Brian handled his illness as he did the rest of his life - as another challenge to take head-on. He took one day at a time and did what he had to do. We can all learn a lesson from his will, and his commitment to Carol and their life together. As I told his brother Charlie, when I think of Brian I think of someone who always walked with his head up and his back straight. Not just because he was confident of himself and his place in the world, but it was his way of making it known that he was not going to be struck down easily. He accepted the cards he was dealt and certainly made the best of it. He was blessed with a great life and a wonderful wife. There will always be a special place in my heart for Brian. He was a great guy and I miss him dearly.

Brian was the best friend I had growing up. I've had some time to reflect since his passing and remember some of the best times of my entire life being spent with Brian. We went to so many concerts together. Many, many Jazz Festivals, and a host of other things. Brian, you truly will be missed by me, but I know that your faith in Jesus has translated you to the Kingdom of God, where the streets are transparent gold. I will see you there someday my brother. All my love in the Lord. Theodore J. Paolotti

Brian was the first friend I made when I moved from Brooklyn to Commack, NY. I will never ever forget the first time we saw each other. It was 1964 and our moving truck had just pulled up to our new home on Long Bow Lane across from Brian's house. Brian rode his bike up to our moving truck and said, Hey kid. We were instant friends. We grew up together throughout the tumultuos 60's and 70's. Although he moved out of NY we managed to stay in touch over the years. We shared a love for music and could always be found at the best concerts and club dates that our favorite musicians were at. I will miss Brian tremendously.
