My condolences for this loss, Brian and Lisa. I'd be there for the celebration of his life as I did for Nicholas, but the other circumstances of the world will prevent it for now.

Words cannot express my sorrow for you both and wish I was there for more support Brian and Lisa. I lost my sister and brother and nearly my son, so understand a bit.....so sending you strength and support.

Wow! I will be praying for them! I lost two brothers, one younger and one older at the ages of 17 and 20 and know it's very painful!

No one on this site has helped more people with sound, solid knowledge than Brian. And I don't know if there is a much nicer person to chat with in person or in PMs.

No words can help in a time like this, but know that we are here for you and lift you up Brian.

Best wishes to you, Oilhammer. I believe your sons couldn't have had a better father.
