    Dear Ed, Roena, and the Zink family,
    I am so terribly sorry for your tragic and sudden loss of Bryan. While I did not have the good fortune of meeting him, I am very sad to loose a member of the Zink clan. We are thinking of you daily and sending you thoughts of strength and serenity during this difficult time. We love you very much.

    My brother Bryan gives us the gifts of open loving hearts, and also the gifts of our stories and shared experiences together. Bryan is a great man who is friendly to everyone he meets and wants to learn and share their stories. As Bryan and all of us want together, we share good times, loving free spirited times and be happy together as family and friends. My brother and best friend, always sharing stories and all together. I love you and Connie Bryan!

    Dear Connie and Zink family,
    Words cannot express how sorry we are for the loss of Brian. We saw him last at my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary in ME and he made my kids laugh with his “Candy Crush King” name tag. I remember him best as being friendly and playful even with his “youngest” cousin. We will continue to pray for all of you through this time of sorrow.

    Love Scott, Kathy, Daniel and Colleen

    How can we say goodbye? We all love you Bryan. You brought so much joy to our lives. You truly “lived large”. I am so sorry Connie that time was too short but I know how happy you made Bryan. My love and prayers are with you.

    Bryan was a special person from a very young age. He had a wonderful personality and made friends wherever he went; he did not know a stranger. He always found a way to connect with everybody he met and was always helping someone. When he met Connie, he found his soulmate. The small town of Harrisville welcomed him with open arms and I am forever grateful to everyone who lives there. Our family will
    miss him forever. Love and prayers from your Mom.
