Dear Ian my Brotheroo, I KNOW, you totally would have made fun of me for paying my respects to the dead on the internet, and that's one of the many reasons I adored you. Within your childlike goofy nature you contained an air of solemn realism. I think this is why you really loved Radiohead. (Thank you for introducing me to awesome music.) Time has flown by. It's been three years now, since you passed. You were an amazing brother. Thank you for always having faith in your little sister and never giving up on hope; encouraging me to pursue my dream of living in NYC, as I never gave up on you. I know you did your best, and you were one of the most kind-hearted people I've been blessed to have in my life. I am grateful for the laughter and the smiles... grateful for the tears; even the moments when you said someday you'd be gone, and I'd cry at your prediction when I was a child. Time is precious, indeed. Alas, there are so many hilarious stories to share, I could fill an entire book. Maybe I will, in your honor. Give Jazzy-Poo a hug for me, and enjoy your adventures on the other side. Your friends, family, Dad, and I miss you so much. We will never forget you, I promise. These tears finally fall with a smile on my face... It's okay. Someday I'll see you on the other side to give you a big hug. And you better not tease your me TOO much for communicating with you via the internet. :) Much Love, SuzyMae your Sisteroo

Ian was a great guy. He always made me smile. He was talented and fun and very spontaneous. He was a great friend to me and my family, my mother, Velma Brown and my brother, Donald Brown loved Ian just as much as I did. I have many memories of Ian spending time at my families homes and playing piano or having witty conversations. He was loved.
