To the family and friends of Brian, I am saddened to hear of your loss. It seems like only yesterday Brian and I were sledding down Hansen's hill, riding our bikes around the neighborhood and hanging out at River of Lakes. Rest in Peace Brian. I have thought of you many times in September and will continue to do so.

As long time Oaklawn residents in East Moline, IL, McKinzies were our close neighbors. Brian grew up with Bart (son and brother),but then life sent us in different directions. We are all very saddened by the passing of Brian and send our deepest sympathy to your entire family. Our prayers are with you, Claire, and those close family and friends of Brian. God bless you all. Ethel, Karyl, Cathy, Sue and Bart
