It's hard to believe that it has been seven months. Not a day goes by that we don't think of Brian and remember the outpouring of support and kindness we received from family, friends and the community alike. Every gesture, every visit, phone calls, hugs or letters are tremendous sources of comfort to us all. We are moved by the love and support shown by all, and it is greatly appreciated.
We thank those who brought enough food to feed us for weeks during the darkest hours of our lives. Thank you to all our neighbors and friends for organizing the tremendous amount of food for the gathering after the interment. Thank you all for a great turnout in attending the funeral in the midday sun. Thank you for a beautiful ceremony and many kind words spoken by the coaches. Thank you for the flowers, gifts, prayers and beautiful letters from the countless condolence cards and telephone calls. Thank you to those who took precious time to walk with us and check in with us from time to time. I apologize for not including any names as they would make this message too long.
We cherish the many stories you wrote about Brian most of which were new to us. We encourage you to continue telling us more stories. We value and read these tales with smiles and tears on our faces. These personal tales are a great source of comfort as we come to terms with our loss. Brian would have been very humbled and proud of the nice things you wrote about him.
Thank you to Oak Park and Oaks Christian High School, Ventura County Board of Supervisor and Agoura Pony Baseball League for their remembrance of Brian. Much thanks to Oak Park High School and Moorpark College for setting up and naming scholarships in Brian's name.
Last but not least, thank you to everyone who contributed to the Wounded Warrior Project in Brian's memory. As of the end of 2009, you have contributed approximately $3,500 to this organization. Thank you again and again for all your support and the tributes.
