To the Mammen family:
I am so sorry for your loss. Being a christian though I have to believe he is with christ in paradise suffering no more. Just know that you will see him again. God takes his true angels , and what I have read about your son and his faith leaves me feeling that he is one of his angels now. Continue to have faith, that is your true comfort. My deepest condolences.

Very sorry to hear this sad news! A former co-worker attends the same church with the Mammen family, and kept us posted on Brian's condition over the years. We knew he lived his life to the fullest, and touched many people with his spirit, which lives on. Sincere sympathy to all his beloved family and friends.

First off, thank you to the five of you that responded with much comfort. Brian was a special kid/adult and had the strength of 10 men to go through what he did. He is at rest now, and he brought many special people to his life.
I have learned much from this young man that I have felt spiritually closer in my faith. That was his message...Don't turn your back on God even though he deals you a wrong hand.
Bless you Brian as you will always be in my thoughts...
Your Uncle Steve.
