Bryan was like gravity; he had a charm and charisma that drew people to him, and made him the center of any gathering, whether with friends or with family. He lit up a room when he entered it, and his smile and sense of fun were so irresistible that you found yourself orbiting around him like the earth around the sun. If everyone who knew him shared just one story about him, not only would it be guaranteed to make you laugh, but you can be sure that Bryan was the instigator of whatever happened. He is the one, in every photo, with his arms around everyone else, drawing them in closer to his heart. He had a heart so big that everyone he knew had a place in it, and he loved unconditionally. Bryan loved to take care of his friends and family, and nothing hurt him more than to not be able to help someone that he considered a friend. His sense of humor knew no bounds; the gifts of joy and laughter that he left us with will be what we carry with us. Although we only had him for a short time, he’s given us a lifetime of love and memories to carry in our hearts; he is now the brightest star in the sky, and his shining spirit will surround us always.
