    Obviously I dont get on social media at all, but I googled Brians name today and was shocked and saddend to see this news. Some of my fondest memories in life will always be working at the Pine Valley bp with him and Ray and all the different charecters that strolled through that awesome place. Thanks for making Wilmington an amazing place for me to work and live and I will never forget you or Marc and especially Ray and all the characters inbetween.
