Big Bri ....
Our family considered you family. I will always remember when you, my sister Lisa Muckle and the crew went to the base to see Bad Company. I couldn’t see the stage being so short. You said “I can solve that Laur!” Up on your shoulders I went. I had the best seat in the house! We sure did rock that concert! I will think of you now, whenever I hear Shooting Star.

I remember you arriving at Lisa’s when Will passed. The gigantic bear hug was like no other. We looked at each other, tears with smiles and back into hugging mode. We hadn’t seen each other in quite a long time since I moved to NH. Shortly after you ran out to your truck. You walked into Lisa’s kitchen, holding a photo album. You said you travel with it behind the seat...
Low and behold, you showed us pictures from the Bad Company Concert! Wow! Who would have thought.
You, Lisa and I had a night filled with walks down memory lane.
I was blessed to witness decades of friendship with my sister. Holidays, parties, concerts, Kaitlyn growing up, highs and lows you name it.
You lit up the room Bri. First by size, followed by that infectious smile and personality. A heart of gold.
My heart breaks for Sarah and all who were blessed to have you be a part of their lives.
You will be sorely missed my friend. Until we meet again, fly high. I love you. Godspeed.

I'll never forget the first time I met Brian, he was a driver at Harry's and I was a driver at Norwich. He felt a need for a change of pace and asked if I could see what I could do for him. He impressed the guys at Norwich and worked up to an office job and seemed happy. R.I.P. Brother. You will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
