My condolences to the Richards and Meadows family. I didn't know Brian, but I knew his wife, Missy, and went to school with her. It's hard to lose a spouse and especially hard when both Brian and Missy seemed to have the rest of their lives ahead of them. But they had this short time together and one day, they'll be reunited in heaven forever.

I know Brian was loved very, very much, his wife made me a better person and I was blessed to be around her infinite kindness, love and selflessness. My heart breaks to hear this and my thoughts and prayers are with Brian and his wonderful wife and their family. I'm so sorry.

Brian was such a wonderful and fun guy. I have so many great memories of Brian at LHS! He had such an infectious laugh and smile. I am so saddened to hear of his passing. Praying for your family during this very difficult time. Melissa Barfield-Sipos

My heartfelt condolences to you. Brian and I were friends in middle school, high school as well as neighbors and teammates on our high school soccer team. Unfortunately, we lost touch after college. I will always remember Brian's sense of humor, his laughter and a bit of a mischievous steak as many kids have. He was challenged with some very difficult things in his lifetime. I hope and pray that, despite the terrible sadness of the moment that he's finally at peace. I hope you can see by this outpouring the impact that Brian had on those in his life.

Brian and I attended LHS together. Due to us sharing a large portion of our classes together we became close, share laughs, jokes, homework an studied for tests together. I haven't seen him since I left LHS but the memories I have are everlasting. Brian was a great guy and I am proud to call him my friend.There is rest in Heaven God Bless You My Friend. Well wishes to his family.

Dear Brad and family, Thank you for keeping us all connected through your cousins Kristine and Kimberly on facebook and email. We are shocked and deeply saddened by the news of the loss of Brian. We had not seen our nephew Brian in many years but recently heard wonderful news about his marriage and his business. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brian's family during this difficult time. With sympathy, Kerry and Charles Adamson
