    Nancy, I am so sad for your loss. You know how much I loved Brien and loved to pick on him. Getting him to smile was my goal for the "Grump" as I called him. I cannot express how devastated I was when I heard of his death. Please know that if there is anything I can do for you, I will. God bless you and your family as you cope with your loss.
