    Dear Bobby, Linda and the Wils9n Family,

    I was saddened to hear of Brian’s passing, he will be missed. Brian built several masonry walls and intricate walkways on several new homes in Dedham for me while attempting to train my son Jeremy and Herk Maloney’s son Patrick in the trade. Brian was somewhat patient with the boys and they thoroughly enjoyed his nonstop chatter every day, yes all day every day. We still reminisce about some of the Brianisms, but the work got done.
    Rest in peace Brian,
    Steve Clifford
