  • You can not always rely on what the news says. The police have to do investigations in these cases. What is printed by the press may not be the actual case here. As a friend of the amazing soul taken to young here this should be a time to share memories of him and pray for his family. He left behind 3 girls who will never understand why there dad was taken so soon a wife who he built a family with a mother who now has to bury her child sisters who loved him aunts uncles and cousins. To his family and friends near and far my condolences. May you rest in paradise and be a shining star for anyone you have known in the darkest of times and you will eternally live on until we all take our last breath.

  • I don’t understand why people are on here making negative remarks. Its a tragedy all around for everyone involved. Even the driver. Instead of bashing, build people up. Offer your prayers, your blessings, your well wishes, your sympathy. This world is so full of ugly, spread peace. Those with negative remarks are missing the big picture 3 little girls lost their father, his fiance lost her other half. How about you offer some consoling words instead of being so cold & negative. May Brendan rest in peace and may his family & friends find some comfort & peace to get through this tragic time and in the days to come. A good soul gone way too soon.

  • HE WAS MY NEPHEW AND HE WAS AN AMERICAN WHITE IRISH/GERMAN BORN IN THE USA GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. HE WAS NOT AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. HE WAS THE FATHER OF THREE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS. HE WILL BE MISSED AND HE WAS MUCHED LOVED. AND HE PASSED AWAY BECAUSE OF SOME STUPID BITCH WHO DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO DRIVE. WHAT THE F____. FOR GOD’S SAKE HE WAS CROSSING THE STREET TO GO TO CIRCLE K TO GET A SODA. THE WOMAN SHE HAVE BEEN DRIVING CAUTIOUSLY AND NOT SO FAST AND SHE SHOULD HAVE HIT THE LAWN MOWER INSTEAD OF MY NEPHEW. I AM TOTALLY DEVASTATED BY THIS. BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I ARE IN SHOCK AND DISBELIEF.

  • My cousin is not an illegal. He was a good man. A father of 3 and loved by many. He is dead because of the idiot that killed him!! I advise everyone that if you have an “ill opinion”, please keep it to yourself as we are mourning the loss of a wonderful man who didn’t deserve this!!
