    Hey great story! Almost zero information! Why did you even bother? That is a bicycle wheel in the picture by the way.

  2. Timothy McGarry says:

    Hey, whatever happened to that “kill a biker- go to jail” law?

  3. Stubby says:

    RIP Brian.

  4. Sarah says:

    RIP Brian. You touched us all…This life is so damn tough I’m sure that whereever you are it’s got to be a kinder, gentler place. Know that you are missed by those that cared about you. Your smile is with me still and always will be.

    Your laugh and smile will forever be missed, Bryan. You were such a gentle soul, and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to know you.

    There is always that idiot that has to make a comment to get a rise out of everyone. He is the guy that sits by himself on a computer all day and has nothing better to do with his time. He probably doesn’t have family to care for like we care for Bryan, so he does what he has to, to make himself feel better. I just pray the Lord will forgive your words and make your heart happy. God bless you and your keyboard! We love and miss you Bryan! RIP

      what a nad.

      I don’t know who you are CousinBear or what you are trying to do here. But you need to leave and let us grief here.

      1. cousinbear says:

        My comment was for the guy that keeps leaving horrible comments on here. I see most of his were deleted. My comment was never to hurt anyone else. We too are grieving this loss, but it is impulse to get frustrated with someone attacking a fa?ily member. And yes the cousin bear thing is dorky..but that’s me!

    Bryan will forever be in our hearts. We are grateful to have known such a wonderful person, even if it was a short time. He knew just how to make you smile. Unfortunately accidents do happen which is why we should never miss the opportunity to live it and let others know the love we have for them.
