From: Barbara MacDonald
Relation: Relationship - How did you know the deceased?

So Sorry to hear about Brian – passing. I went to school with Brian at Cowichan High. Later Brian became a friend of my brother, Ian, who also suffered from mental illness. Brian was present at Ian’s funeral in 1991. I’ll always remember seeing Brian there and was thankful that Brian attended. Later still in life, I would see Brian around the Alano Club. He was always friendly and always remembered me.

If Brian died from esphogeal cancer – I would like to collect his story.
Please email.
