- Piccolo Legacies
“When they think of him, it’s not how he died that they remember, but rather how he lived, how he did live!”
-Quote taken from the movie, Brian’s Song
Brian’s Song could have been a sad song, but he wouldn’t have wanted it that way. Brian was determined and competitive, and he never gave up. He had faith in himself, his friends and his own ability. He had an infinite capacity for loving others, most of all his wife, Joy; their three children, Lori, Traci and Kristi; “Saint” Grace, “the world’s greatest mother-in-law;” and sister-in-law Carol, who needed … and got … unstinting affection and love. Brian made her cross a little easier to bear.
Brian died, but he gave it a good fight. And that’s what he should be remembered for. Not the tragedy of his dying, but the triumph of his living.
In the years since his death, Brian Piccolo has been honored in so many ways by so many organizations and individuals. What an incredible tribute.
