    To the McCarthy Family, my deepest condolences. Brian ran by my side for 2 Chicago Marathons and helped me finish a liftime goal. He was always telling me stories about you 3 girls and you, Cindy. He was so proud of you all and you were his world. I am so sad to hear he has left us. Sending many prayers. Nancy O’Brien

    Brian was one of the nicest guys I’ve ever known. Gone way too early. He was not only a business associate, but a good friend who I could always count on for a great conversation about any sport from baseball to golf. He will be missed.

    Cindy, Pat and I are SOoooo very sorry for the loss of Brian! He and I had many conversations about the four of us playing golf again sometime and we both always had lots going on and kept saying soon….I definitely regret not doing it. My most fond memory of him,you and the girls was when we were at function in Michigan and while others went out to eat,we stayed in our condo and had pizza, beer and lots of laughs. Your ability to focus on the great past memories will assist in your heartship. You and the girls are in our thoughts and prayers……

    Cindy, Marisa, Megan and Morgan, words cannot describe how so sorry I am for your loss. Brian was not only a consummate professional but the nicest and kindest business associate I have ever known. Our business conversations always lasted longer than planned because once we got the work talk out of the way, we spoke of all things sports and our families. He was very proud of all of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. I will miss him immensely.
