So saddened and shocked to hear of Brians departure, he was such a kind and funny man, and some of his posts used to make me chuckle, but most of all i admired the love and devotion he showed towards his family and flower girls, who he absolutely adored, it just won,t be the same without him. God Bless You, you will be missed so much on CT.Karen Ruby and Sadie xxx
Such sad news.
Remembering the man who went out on Christmas Day to feed the wild cats where he worked, who posted wonderful photos of his Flower Girls and was so proud of his clever young Son.
My deepest condolences to Dawn and Luke
I am totally heartbroken.
Rest in peace Brian, your wit, charm, gracious attitude and endless love your your flower girls, Dawn and Luke will live on forever. My prayers to his family right now, this must be so hard.
Immense sadness today.
Really sad to hear this news. Will miss seeing Brian's beautiful photographs that he took of his flower girls. My deepest condolences go to Dawn and Luke.
Shocked and saddened to hear of Brian's death. I always looked forward to new photos of his cavalier girls and reading his many helpful posts. My sincerest condolences to Dawn and Luke. Rest in peace Brian.
I'm so shocked to hear this sad news, I loved the way the wording of his posts his posts really reflected the way he loved his girls and the cats. his photographs (especially the one with the girls in mid air running towards the camera).
My deepest condolences to Dawn and Luke
There are never adequate words in times like these.
Though we knew he was ill, his report just two months ago was upbeat and positive for the things they were trying. But here we are, much too quick, mourning a sweet man with a huge heart for all God's creatures.
I loved his posts about all the supplements, and grooming needs of his girls. So many of us said we wanted to come back after we passed, as one of Brian's girls. And what beautiful girls they are! So well loved, and well taken care of.
The board will be a much more quiet place without Brian challenging us with his wit, and stories of walks with the girls, taking care of Dawn, and his proud moments sharing stories about his beloved Luke.
I'll look back fondly at all the photo's he has shared of his four flower Cav's and miss him all the more.
Who he was, shone through in all his posts, and he certainly was passionate about our precious Cavaliers!
I hope that Dawn and Luke will know how much he meant to so many of us here at Cavalier Talk.
It's hard to take in that he is gone. My heart is hurting today. I'll be praying for his family. Hold your dear ones just a bit closer these days, sometimes our time is shorter than we could ever imagine.
My heart goes out to Dawn & Luke for whom his love & pride always shone through, God bless you & give you strength. I was also recounting the stories of Brian going to feed his cats on Christmas day recently Margaret. As many others here will agree,( as they have also), I've been very fortunate to be able to call Brian my good friend in the last five years & his loss is going to leave a huge hole in my life, as with many others here & it was with shock & distress that I was told of his passing today, hence my late posting now. I also feel fortunate to have had the chance recently to thank Brian for all his help & friendship in one of our last conversations & how he would be very much missed by us all here on CT. So with a heavy heart & tears I can say Bri bud, it was an honour to know you, I will miss you but rest now, in peace my friend xxx
Honestly I have been watching for an update post from him and thinking of him, I miss his pictures and funny posts about all the wonderful trouble the girls always seem to get into. When I first joined CT Brain was one of the first friendly members I came into contact with. He had great advice about grooming and dental care. I was and still am quite jealous he has a whole "set" of all girls too!!!
My deepest condolences to those who truly where blessed to know him outside of CT. He was so worried about Dawn last year when she was sick, he loved her so. And he was always bragging about Luke, a real proud Dad. I'm not sure anyone could love 4 little dogs more than Brian. Even when one of the girls was up to no good, usually Dangerous Daisy he always saw to fun and love in the act not a dog misbehaving. I aspire to be such a wonderful doggie parent. Cavaliertalk and world lost a good guy today. Rest in Peace.
Sad news. Even though we are separated by great distances and never met face to face, this board helped us meet a truly amazing person. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in the hopes that they will bring them peace and comfort. Cavaliers have lost an amazing friend and advocate. Brian's posts and advice will be missed.
