Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I have known the family for 35+ years. I grew up alongside Monica, spending a lot of time at the Connelly home. I always remember Bryan as a big man, and someone to look up to. That became very evident when Jenna was born. Bryan loved his grandkids so much. I will always remember his smile and how much he loved teasing me. He was a very special person and I am grateful to have known him and spent time with him and his family. He became like a second dad to me, especially after losing my own dad. I love you, Bryan. - Posted by: Karen (Family Friend) on: Feb 09, 2019
