Brian Hulse - My Friend, My Brother
As some of you know, my good friend, Brian Hulse passed away this week. He was the type of person who always had a smile and could make people feel good. In the beginning stages of me putting my life back together after the storm, Brian had been there as both a friend and a brother. He was probably one of the very first to support me in my NoLA Rising campaign and to encourage me to put more of my time into painting. One of the very first NoLA Risers, Brian had also purchased a painting of mine to give to his sister Mary as a birthday presents. In short, he believed in me and what I was doing and that helped me believe in myself. So, to that light in the sky that will always warm my heart, here's to you brother...On this day, I SALUTE YOU AND YOUR JOY FOR LIFE and hope that the lessons I've learned from you will carry me through my days. Be at peace, brother, for so many of us miss you.
