To all of Brian's family we send our condolences.
It was a shock to hear the news as Brian had just been into the mill for a chat.
He was a great guy to work with and a good friend.
Always a smile on his face and always chuckling at something or someone.
He will really be missed.
I hope the pain you are all feeling now, will quickly turn into warm memories.
He loved you all!

Very sorry to hear about my old friend of many years has passed.
My condolences to Brians family, the loss of your mom not long ago also is more than a family should have to bear in so short a time.
Take comfort in the thought that your mom and dad are together again.
Rest in peace Brian.
Jack
