    I'm not always regular on this forum, but doc, Brian, was the first person I got to know, and got to know me. I am truly sorry and heartbroken to hear this sad news. He was such a brave, inspiring, hardworking man, I will miss him.

    Out of almost anyone here, I'd say Doc might have been my favorite to chew the fat with. I only wish I were around more; there's so much time I missed that I could have spent here before his time was up. But I'll never regret what time I was around.

    I am so sorry to hear that Doc is gone.

    I only knew him from the forums and had asked his permission to keep a copy of a photo of his. With the nicest of messages he gave me permission.

    My condolences to his family.

    Brian has been gone almost a year now, but I still miss him every day. When you have someone special in your life, like Brian, who encompasses all that a good friend should be, and so much more, cherish them. You never know when they will suddenly be gone. I still have to stop myself from sending him messages on his important dates. Messages reminding him about appointments he had made months in advance, or events he had been interested in attending. Every time I do, it is a sad reminder that my dear friend is gone. At least he got to fall in love, and take the best trip of his life, before he was gone. Unfortunately, his heart got broken by someone he saw creating a future with. However, it did make him realize how much he wanted to love someone, and to be loved in return. Even brokenhearted, he still found something positive about the situation.

    I remember when he first joined HF. Over time, especially after he became chat mod, he finally found people that he could call his friend, and mean it, on here. He truly enjoyed and respected so many people on HF. So many of you made him happy, and helped him forget about his health issues, and work, at least for a while. When his life hit rough patches. this was his sanctuary. He found friendship, laughter, and people who made him feel "normal" here, and he could just be himself and no one treated him like he was frail, or sick. It meant a lot to him.

    As for me, I miss everything about him. I always will. He was someone that is unforgettable.

    As the anniversary date approaches I've been thinking a lot about him too. There are things that happen in my daily life that make me think about messaging him then I remember I can't. Every time I look at my tattoo for him I think about how he had every reason to be miserable but never gave up. I will always miss him.

    i wonder if he was able help others on lists

    i imagine he had a lot of medications which may have prevented it

    all his friends could remember him by making sure theyre on organ donor list

    I doubt he was able to donate with all of his medical issues. He was on dialysis 3 nights a week and quite a few medications. I had talked to him about getting tested to donate a kidney to him. I wasn't a match but I am an organ donor.

    I can't hey, I found out maybe a year ago I went to donate blood and they said since I've had corneal transplants I can't do that and it also make donating harder which I find sad because I wouldn't be able to see now, if it wasn't for somebody donating.
