    Lord knows, Laura I have tried to say the right words to console you and embrace you. I fail to express how deeply sad I am for you and your family. Brian was so special and watching how you and Tody spoke about him made me feel your love for him. He will always be in our hearts. My special prayers to you and your family. Love Robanne
