I noted recently that the cause of death of Bryan Thomson was listed as not known.  He was my very best friend throughout high school years, and we traveled to Myrtle Beach every summer,and the Bahamas at graduation.  Bryan developed a malignant brain tumor and died suddenly shortly after having the tumor operated.  He was recovering nicely at first but had a sudden cerebral hemorrhage from his surgical site and never regained consciousness.  He died in 1999 at the age of 50.  I never met anyone in our class who did not enjoy being with Bryan Thomson and I have thought of him many times over the last 18 years.

Thanks,Walter for your update on Bryan. I,too,considered Bryan  a great friend. Good memories of basketball games in the driveway and friendship that was so dependable and honest. He left us much too soon but never forgotten.   Les K.

Walter and Les, thanks for your updates on Bryan. I too considered Bryan a friend and never met anyone who did not enjoy his company, and value his friendship. Bryan owned a landscaping company.  Shortly before he died, he was referred to my parents for designing a new layout for the addition of plants, bushes, and shrubs for improving their yard on Alamance Drive. My parents were very impressed with him and appeciated the time he spent explaining his plans for improving their yard, to be sure they were happy with the changes.  My Mom and Dad mentioned to me several times what a fine young man he was, and that I was lucky to have friends like Bryan. Our lives were better for having known him. He will be missed, but not forgotten.

Bryan was Frank Power's right hand man in Frank's landscaping business. I remember Frank was part of the receiving line at Bryan's service. I think Frank thought of Bryan as family.
