    Deepest condolences to Bucky and the family. I grew up with Brett and his brothers – I have fun memories with him at St. Joseph’s, and on the swim team. So proud that he served his country. Rest in peace, Brett.

    My deepest condolences to Mr. Antonacci and family. Brett was a special friend to me. We could talk for hours and did just that when we were kids dreaming and making our plans. I can see him in the blue El Camino and hear the band Boston playing in the tape deck. I know he’s in a better place, no more sickness. Godspeed my friend.
