Re: Update - Visitation and Memorial Info for Brian Wynne added 


 

Man, I just don't know what to say. While I did not know Brian, or his family, my heart absolutely aches for them!  

I have three kids of my own, including a 9 year old son. I have been coaching his little league team for several years now. We LOVE the beach, and have been to Fernandina several times.

Instances like this are always in the back of your mind, but you go out in the surf anyway.

You always like to think you will react in a manner such as Brian did, absolutely unselfish....HEROIC!!

My family and I want to extend sincerest condolences to the Wynne family. May God be with you during this extremely difficult time!


Sincerely,
Jeff (Gobeez)

Continued condolences, thoughts and prayers 


My condolences to his family and friends, they've been in my thoughts all weekend.  Unfortunately this was not the only incident here in Florida this weekend.

Prayers for BeeWin's family and friends, hopefully they can get through this tough time.

On another Note: WhiteandGoldGal: Didn't a Patriots player also drown near that beach due to the rough tide currents.

The Patriots player (Marquise Hill from LSU: remember him from the 2000 Peach Bowl?) drowned while jetskiing in Lake Ponchartrain, near New Orleans.

thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends 


we are all better for knowing him and befriending him.  There is not a greater husband or father out there than Brian.  He will be missed greatly!

Prayers for the Wynne family. I stayed on the island 


this weekend, but didn't watch TV or read a paper the whole time.  The place was absolutely loaded with Georgia fans and I was wondering if there was another Tech fan on the island.  Now I just wish there had been one less.  The undertow was really bad, and they had most beaches closed because of it.  This is so very sad.

Condolences to his family and friends... 


I didn't know him personally but his face was familiar from Beesball.

Although I did not know Brian, I am truly sorry to hear of this.  It is obvious that this is a loss to much more than the GT community.  The world doesn't have enough of the kind of person he clearly was.  My deepest sympathy to his family.

I have just returned and am saddened by this news. There is little else I can add.

BW has his peace now. May those he left behind find the strength to find their peace in his memory.

Just found this thread 


Over here in Bham we live in another world from ATL, so such news doesn't make its way.  Saw the black buzz this am...and was simply astonished and saddened.  I am not sure if we might have met at a tailgate or not, but clearly this was a great man and father.  We are praying for his family and others who have been impacted by this tragedy.

I grew up on the coast in California, and between the waves and the undertow, it could make for a frightening day at the beach.  I was dragged out a long ways a couple of times, and have some sense of the terror Will felt as a kid.  To be saved by his father is an awesome gift, but to lose his father in the process is overwhelming.  I will be specifically praying that God will both comfort and teach him through this.

Re: Visitation and Memorial Service 


I'll just add the Memorial Service was indeed special and we were privileged to attend. 

Both Brian's brother and son gave very touching eulogies from the heart.  They included the sincerity of Brian's serious side--things he believed most important--and some levity I know Brian appreciated. 

Brian Wynne was truly and appropriately honored.

Memorial lapel pins--visit the blog (see Buzzfan post pg 1) 


to learn about the pins and how to make donations to Will's education fund.  He will be in the third grade at Greater Atlanta Christian next year.  These are the things we can do to help the family and honor Brian's memory.
