Dear Horst, I am so very sorry and extremely sad to hear of Brian's passing. Brian was my close childhood friend and to this day, whenever I think of him it makes me smile. I will always keep Brian with me in my heart and will remember his incredible smile, his joyful sense of humor and his deep love of life. I know he loved you very much and I am sorry for your pain during this time. Brian will never be forgotten.

Dear Cousin Brian...I will always remember you as a teenager playing Dionne Warwick's Do You Know The Way To San Jose and dancing while you sang your heart out. Thank you for the memories that make my heart smile. ~Horst, even though we never met I want to say my thoughts and prayers are with you for strength and peace. Be blessed.
