  1. Brials was like a son to me. He and my son grew up together in Fieldbrook. It is beyond my greatest imagination that this is how he would leave this earth. May he rest in peace and whom ever did this to him may he rot in the depths of hell. I will miss Brials wonderful smile and large cuddly hugs until the end of my time here. I will see him on the other side for sure.
