While we lost touch over the years I thought of you often. We grew up together play poker together, video games, running all over the country side and basically were each other’s childhood confidantes. I wish we could have met up one more time before your time is due. Until we see each other again, he will be in my thoughts.

Dear Adrian,
You are my cherished brother. You have been such a huge part of my life. With our parents having to work so hard for us to have a good life, you played an important role in raising me and helping me become a man. I always looked up to you as a child and as an adult envious how you were always able to make ends meet being self employed and never had to stick to regular working hours. I was never that creative, part of the reason I joined the Navy and work the 60 hour weeks or more. I regret not being able to spend as much time with you as I wanted being overseas. I always treasured our time together when I visited and you always made it super enjoyable. You gave me love for the mountains. Now whenever I am in them I will think of you. You left way to soon and a piece of me will be lost forever but when I am in the mountains it fills it just a little. I love you so much and hope your soul is still hiking through the Rocky Mountains.

You loved having a good time surrounded by friends, enjoying the beautiful outdoors and sharing your passions with those you held dear. You touched so many lives--to say you will be dearly missed and never forgotten is an understatement. I can imagine you are sitting there rolling and smoking a fatty with the Big Man Himself while mapping the next mountain trail. RIP buddy--your uncle, Rick & Heidi Brittain

To a life well lived and doing it your way. You enjoyed your life and the great outdoors, but it ended to soon. We hope you find peace and a mountain trail to continue the journey, and an eternal happiness in a new great outdoors. Rest In Peace, your uncle, Randy Brittain.
