Dear Great Uncle John,
You have not been forgotten. The reflections left here by so many from across the country, has touched me deeply. It brought tears to my eyes. How kind are these people to remember and honor you!

I have been researching the Brennan family for 7 years now and this is the first time I've seen these beautiful notes. I thought that no one remembered you.

Your death was so tragic and unnecessary. I'm certain your mother and siblings were very grieved. Your father died in 1901. You are the brother to my husband's grandfather Michael Francis Brennan.

To see a photo and headstone...
