For the servant of God Brendan
« on: April 21, 2017, 09:54:55 AM »
This past weekend, only Holy Saturday, my dear friend Brendan passed from this mortal coil.  While he was in poor health for some years, his actual death came as a bit of a shock.  He was a beloved photographer for our local alternative weekly newspaper, the Baltimore City Paper, and had been documenting the underground music scene for a long time.  He was known for his wide angle, fish lens style shots and was, in a few words, a giant teddy bear.  He was also one of those people who had an innate ability to fix something; if he didn't know it already, he would learn it quickly.  He is responsible for making a lot of us local Baltimore musicians look good and his absence will leave a giant hole in our hearts.  The stool he used to sit on at the end of the bar at one of the local watering holes will always be empty; he was kind of the Norm from Cheers of the place.

Please remember him in your prayers.

Thanks for sharing some of your memories of him. Memory eternal.

Memory eternal.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
