Heaven is richer today and we are mourning the passing of Brian, our neighbor. Though I did not know Brian well personally, I knew him through his gentle kindnesses toward my long time friend over the years. He seemed to be a quiet, hard working man who was a blessing to many lives; most especially to his loving soulmate, Terry. The world would be richer with more people like Brian and certainly will be a lot poorer without him! My thoughts and prayers are with Terry, Brian and all of their loved ones.
