Brian Williams 1986-2007
January 11, 2007
Today I’m in Albert Lea, Minnesota attending the funeral of my friend Brian Willaims. Brian grew up next door to me and is the younger brother of my good friend Jaime.
The service begins at 9 am this morning. The funeral procession will travel to Woodward, Iowa for interment in the afternoon. My friend Thomas and I are pallbearers.
Brian was 20 years old and a soldier in Iraq. I saw him online often and played video games with him. He was on leave for the hoilidays when he committed suicide at his mother’s house in Albert Lea.
He will be missed.
