Brendan was 22 years old when he died. At 6 ft 5 inches he was larger than life. He was always there whenever someone needed a helping hand. Even if he didn’t know you he would stop to lift up your car, shovel your driveway, give you a $20 dollar bill and give a kind word. He didn’t offer you a hand up. Even now we see him reaching down to us left behind and offering a hand.
