    I have so many great memories of hanging out with Bryan and the crew in our younger days. He was always fun and smiling. R.I.P.

    Bryan was the father to two of my boys and we was together from 1989- July 2005 . We had many up and downs . He lost his way if life due to his mental illness but was a very prideful guy and didn’t want to believe anything was wrong until he was diagnosed closer to the end. I am glad he is not fighting demons any longer and can R.I.P .
