Condolence & Memory Journal

On behalf of Brendan's Stop & Shop family we are so sorry and saddened for your loss. I have known Brendan for over 20 years ( "since I was a wee lass" as he would say) He was like the grandfather I never had and one of the most loving caring individuals I have met. I consider myself so fortunate to have known and loved him. Brendan also shared the Irish heritage with my mom. We always talked about how they should meet someday. My thoughts prayers and love are with all of you. I will truly miss seeing Brendan. May he Rest in Peace and he will be in my heart forever.
