Today my heart goes out to your family. As the years go on your memory is still strong with me when I visit Cape May. I remember how you used to drag me along to run and how far we'd jog. It's always the simple things that I remember about you. I remember being so scared on those jet skis but you'd be proud I rode a Harley!

When I become a little down or shallow about my life, I look at your and your son's picture posted on my desk and remember how not to feel sorrow or regret. I hear your voice tell me things about the bigger picture in life. I miss you. I wish you could be here for our other cousin hurting right now, but I know you are in spirit. You are missed even now by all who loved you.

Well, what can I say? My love, my life, my hero, I hope you are proud.... When I lost you, I thought at first it was forever, silly me! It took me a while, but I realized you never did, and you never will. Our son is everything we wanted him to be. He is and will be everything we dreamed for him: Smart, caring, funny, strong, charismatic, and of course as gorgeous as his father. When his big blue eyes look at me and say, "I love you," I feel you coming right through. Thank you, my love, for infusing my soul with unconditional and irreplaceable love, through our son, and for all of the love, protection, and guidance that has been sent my way through Craig and Pierce. I am truly blessed here on earth, and I know that eternity and the place your spirit resides is patiently and perpetually observing and overflowing with love for us, as we are for you, constantly in our hearts and minds. "Cause that's how we's likes it."

Yours always,

I never knew Brian, but my mother was/is best friends with Tina (his wife). And because of this tragedy, I was able to become part of a wonderful family. I was Tina's right hand and now know Grant (Brian's son) almost as good as she does lol. I watched him grow, and from what I hear from others' comments, he is just as great as his father was. I am so sorry for the loss but so lucky to know Grant the way I do, and through this I feel like I know a part of Brian. You will never be forgotten in the eyes of those who love you and all around them.

Today I was reminded of Brian, but around Christmas I received one of the nicest Christmas cards from Tina Bilcher Murphy. Thank you. It's always nice to be reminded of your time spent here with us. I can only imagine what your family misses. May peace be with your family members.

I found this site while helping my son Patrick do research for school. Brian is remembered for his large spirit and happy presence. The last time I saw him was the summer before 9-11 at a family gathering. Although I hadn't seen him for many years prior to that, he made me feel as though it had been only days since we'd last seen one another. He had that it factor. A hero forever.

Brian and I shared 4 years together. He was my first true love. He was very funny, outgoing, and caring. I don't recall anyone meeting him and stating they didn't like him. We did many things together, had a great time. Unfortunately our relationship didn't last like I had wished. I think about him often and miss him very much. He's always in my heart!

Love you! Miss you always! I do agree with my big sister Janine and really wish he could have been there to throw Grant, Sydney, and Makayla into the waves!

Your cousin,

When we graduated Susan Wagner HS in 1980, had gotten our diplomas on the last day, leaving for the very last time, talking about what we were going to do after HS, I remember Brian speaking about nothing else than being a NYC Fireman. That is all he talked about. It's been 27 years now and I can still see him sitting on the
wall with everyone talking about being a fireman. Rest in peace, Brian.

You were a hero. I'm glad to have researched you for a project at school. I'm honored.

Another year spent in Cape May without Brian being there. I don't think there will ever be a year that I don't remember his presence. I wish my kids could have meet my cousin. I long for that, but it never happened. That continues to make me sad, but I will always try to imitate his spirit with them.

I miss you,
Janine O'Hara

Brian was the kind of person that everyone thought of as their best friend. He was thoughtful and caring and always ready to lend a hand. We did everything from going to Giants games to hanging out on his boat. He was a very dear friend and a great person. I still miss him every day.

Brian was a Corvette owner, and a fellow member of the C-5 Registry. He is missed.

i visited my family this summer (2006) in cape may new jersey, I missed brian being there. we use to run and hang out together. he definitely was the glue for the rest of my family. I know my younger sister misses him dearly. I don't think I can ever go to cape may without a missing him as well.

Brian and I hung out for years.We shared a house in Manasquan for 2 years and we had nothing but fun times. I look back at the times when we hung out and I have to say they were some of the best times of my life.
  I miss Brian but I know he is in Heaven, he was a good person and a good friend

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site.

We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!
