Dear Anita and Lynn,
 We are so sorry to hear of your loss.
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Bryan's family and friends.  Bryan was a wonderful man and I am so glad that I was lucky enough to have him in my life even if it was for a short time in the summer of 2009.  My kids and I and some of my kids friends that met him all thought he was one of the kindest people you would ever be lucky enough to meet.  I ran into Bryan two times in the last few weeks and I am glad that I had those opportunities to see him.  I will miss him dearly and I hope that Cowboy finds a good home.  He is a great cat and I know Bryan really loved him.  Bryan, I hope you rest in peace and I will remember the fun times I had with you.  Thank you for letting me in your world even if it was for a short time.  God Bless you.

God bless Bryan and his family. I know that Bryan will be missed by all who knew him.  It was my pleasure to work with him at IBM. His serious nature as well as his humorous side were qualities that made him great to be around.

Tom Chesek
I was so very sad to hear of Bryan's untimely death.  He is the exact same age as my son and I can only imagine the pain everyone must be feeling.

Bryan and I became friends and were very much involved with 2 big projects at IBM, before my retirement in 2007.  I held only the highest opinion of Bryan as a talented and all around great person.

I offer my sincere sympathies and your family will be in my prayers.

To Bryan's Family -
 I had the distinct pleasure of working with Bryan on numerous occasions over the course of the past 20 years, and I wanted you all to know that I considered him to be among the best of the best.  He was a class act in every sense of the word, and I always appreciated his ability to make me laugh in spite of any situation.  He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him, and I can only offer my condolences.  Bryan was not only a colleague, but more so a friend, and he will be remembered as a kind and generous person.  We were all blessed to have known him.

Kimber Carson
Our thoughts go out to everyone who was a part of Bryan's life.  We only got to enjoy his company at our family gatherings, but he will be missed for many years to come.
