I Just Learned That a Precious Member of the Democratic Underground Community Has Passed Away.
:cry:

You knew him as PBS Poll-435, formerly prodn2000.

I knew him as Brian.

His dear friend, Mark, contacted me today to share the sad news and to ask that I tell all of you at DU.

Brian loved this board, Mark said. He loved people and was the kindest of souls, this I know for certain.

I'm so sad right now, Brian was the nicest DU member I've ever known.

Brian's Avatar:

You may send me a PM if you'd like me to forward any communications to his people.

50. Thank you. Brien was only 29 years old. He was a big fan of Gaby Giffords and the Tucson Food Bank
I'm posting this up high, I know you won't mind Tuesday Afternoon.

Brien was also an loyal fan of Secretary Hillary Clinton and we had a playful banter around our respective favorites.

He was just a dear, dear soft spoken and kind man.

Thank you, everyone, for your thoughtful comments.

Mark is reading this and said he might sign up to the DU later this week.

:hug:

15. Dear God. Brian was one of my friends here.
He was a wonderful, kind soul who always looked after me when I had my surgery. he called me to check on me a couple of times.
What a loss. He was a beautiful man.
I am devastated.

That makes me sad and happy at the same time. Sad that we lost someone who was willing to do something, but happy that someone had hope enough to want to help other people despite what was soon to come.

77. Wow. And that's how we can help, if we can...
Wow, that might be his last post on DU.

PBS Poll-435


2. Let's do something


My cause is because of Gabrielle Giffords: The Community Food Bank of Tucson.

They serve Tucson, Green Valley, Tubac, Nogales, and many, many more communities.

47. Donations in Memory of Brien: Information Here:
I've been asked if there was a way to demonstrate condolences in Brien's memory.

Mark told me that they were both big supporters of Gabrielle Gifford's causes, especially the Food Bank in Tucson.

Brien's most recent journal entry discussed Representative Giffords: http://journals.democraticunderground.com/PBS%20Poll-43...

Here's an article about the Giffords family assistance center:

http://www.tucsonsentinel.com/local/report/051211_hunge... /

I don't feel comfortable at this point sharing Brien's last name, I'll correct that if I hear differently from Texas.

Thanks, everyone.

62. this is MARK - Brien's best friend
I'm not surprised at the outpouring of love you all have shown
during the loss of Brien.  He was my best friend of 11 years
and loved people and life.  I can't believe that he is
actually gone from this world.  Thank you for all the kind
words.  He loved you all just as much.

I miss him so much.  The 11 years with my friend were the best
and there will never be a day that goes by that he will not be
thought of and missed.

Brien would always put others first and I know he would want
you to do the same.  Impact somebody, even with a smile.  It
could change their life.

I will always love and miss you Brien.  Thank you for the
memories.

When I had my brain surgery,Brien called and checked on me...worried I wasn't socializing... told me he was "safe".
I love him like my brother.
I hope you find a small amount of comfort knowing your sharing will help the ones you both were so committed to.

86. Dear Mark, your comments are so heartfelt and they really affected me. I'm so touched.
Please keep him in your memories and spread the love you had for your friend with others who need it, I will surely do the same, as I can't recall even one instance where he and I got into an argument, such a kind soul that DU increasingly needs these days.

101. Brien will be greatly missed in this community.
We can never have too many voices with intelligence, humor, passion, and compassion-- all of which he brought to DU in abundance.

I remember the sustained snigger I got out of his name change and the joke it represented (that had gone on, and on, and on, and ON...)

We are diminished in his loss, but enriched in his memory. I hope memory keeps him with you whenever you need a reminder of how wonderful human beings can be.

sadly,
Bright

the years of love, the hopes and dreams can be carried forward through those of us who knew him here on DU.

May we recall the best of times, the joy, the love the wit and the good heart of a great Du'er.

I assume this was unexpected, since(to my knowledge, he hadn't mentioned on this board that he was having any health problems).

He and I often disagreed, but generally the disagreements were civil. I respect the commitment he showed to his positions.

I'll send you a pm later to pass on.

117. the strength through your postings by MARK
This is just amazing to see and feel the sincere words you all
are saying.  I visited his grave this evening as I have since
the day he was buried 3 weeks ago.  I read so many of your
comments. I could literally see his smile in my mind and knew
he was pleased with me sharing the information of his passing
with you all. He was so passionate about serving and loved
people.  Not having him part of my life has changed so much
that words can't describe. I wish he was here to make this
world a better place.  I miss and love you Brien.  Peace and
blessings to all of you!  I appreciate your kind words about
the best guy I know.

I'm beyond being upset. Brien was a kind, humorous person and a big Hillary supporter. We exchanged many messages over the last few years.

I don't even know what to say, I do know though that PBS-435 will be sorely missed on this board. It'll be strange not seeing his cuddly bear anymore.

Oh, hell!!!!!!

The thought that his donation will expire and the bear will go away was too much.

I'll try to find a way to keep that from happening.

Hi Beacool-

Pooch is fine and living with her grandparents, keeping them company all day while daddy does his work.

And you? I hope all is well.

You know, I came to know you and Brien during the primaries and you were both so very nice about disagreements we might have.

Thanks for being you, and take care of yourself cuz life is too darned short!

Life is way too short. Right now I'm in Europe visiting family, precisely because life IS too short and one should keep one's loved ones near. I'm in France right now and was already in Barcelona. Next week I'm flying to Brussels to visit my brother the economist. Brussels is where the headquarters of the European Union are at.

Thanks for the kind words and for you also being you.

Au revoir mon cher.

he was one of very few DU'ers whose posts I really liked.

He'll be missed. :-(

169. Me and Brian used to have spirited discussions over pre-election polls
I can not believe he is gone. RIP. :(

He was smart and funny. Surely will be missed.

177. Indeed.
Brien wasn't a daily poster but those who knew him loved him, regardless of political POV.

I'm hoping that this post will stay kicked for visibility for members who only check in every few days or once a week.

Thanks all.

:hug:
