Friends & family of Athus Nadorian aka Brian Dyer

Friends & family of Athus Nadorian aka Brian Dyer,

On Tuesday the 11th of October 2011, Athus was involved in a severe car collision that ended his time here with us. The 29 years of his life were filled with amazing stories, incredible adventures and outstanding creativity and talent. He shared his love of life, affection for others and sense of humor with many wonderful people.

In memory of Athus and his special life, his closest kin have created this site for others to share their experiences with Athus as well as share photos and artwork. An email address has been established to send your wishes in to be posted on this site athus@athusnadorian.com.

Thank you for your kind words, love and support through all of this. Remember to love life, hold your friends close and have a little fun – Athus wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

-Friends and Family

We have established a Paypal donation button below for those who wish to donate to Narse and Sarmy’s medical expenses, and Athus’s final expenses. Thank you.

    How to start… since I “discovered” him, what he realy was, his influence, his presence was alwais there, causing on me a deep feeling of admiration and respect; like a friend on my life way who I wish I could have ever met better, now it seems a new part of our lifes started, he has took his own way, appart from our one, he’s gone and we have to stay here, and we’ll remember him as his way next to us wasn’t empty, the fact of him dying hurted us lots, and just the fact of what Narse have to be feeling right now scares me more than most of thins can ever had scared my mind; anyway, we have to keep walking, show must go on, but not everything is sad, now he’s free, and will keep on his own way beeing what he alwais wanted to be, a free dragon; I just hope to meet him some day, I realy hope so, when our ways cross again and our road’d be the same again, well meet… but not now, not now.

    I can’t say that I knew you personally, because I didn’t. I can’t even say that I ever spoke to you, because I didn’t.

    But I can say that despite that, I really, really miss you. It’s always tragic when the world loses a kinda and great-minded individual of many talents, and your loss is no exception.

    From what I can tell, you were a great individual; one of the greatest, in fact. You were funny, caring, and outgoing. You were what many of us aspire to be, including myself. I’ll keep you, your family, and your friends in my thoughts and prayers.

    You will be greatly missed, Athus. You already are. <3 Rest in peace.

  • CrystalisRC says:

    All I can say was the man/draogn was a legend known to both Draconic and Dragon Realms, his life and love for art and love know no equal. He is a man to be remembered for his gifts to the community and the draconic communities alike. He’s a man to be respected for his views on certain things and he always knew how to put a smile on someone’s face. A part of me died the day I learned of his passing. I want to remember him as just that.

  • Lunatick says:

    Athus, I never knew you personally or got to speak to you, I knew you by your art, it was very passionate and inspiring.

    You will always be missed.

  • Kenta says:

    The picture you did for me when I met you is still on my wall.
    I miss you.

  • Ember says:

    Athus,

    Whenever we chatted together you projected such a positive and wonderful energy. You always saw the light in the world, and you cherished it.

    You had such excitement about myself and my mate Koba. You were so happy for the relationship that he and I shared. You spoke of us in ways that made us turn to each other with a fond smile.

    Koba and I had both looked forward to meeting you. You made us both feel closer to each other.

    You had a profound impact on so many lives.

    You brought joy to this world in so many ways.

    I will remember you, Athus. I miss you.

  • Phastor says:

    I only knew you through your art. I didn’t know much about you, except that you were a fellow dragon and a great artist. I regret that I didn’t learn more about you and I am ashamed that it was only after your passing that I learned of the great person you were and how many people you have touched in your life. You would have been a wonderful dragon to know and I would have been proud to call you friend.

    To his friends, family, and especially Narse. We have never met, but there are still no words that can describe my sorrow for your loss. I know his memory will always live on and I hope, in time, that you may have some comfort knowing that he will always be within your hearts.

    Rest well, Athus.

  • Evan Li says:

    I met him only briefly, but he was a good guy. He left us too soon and left a lot of great people behind. May he rest in peace and give those he left behind the strength to carry on.

  • Evan Li says:

    I met him only briefly, but he was a good guy. He left behind many great people and left this world too soon. May he rest in peace and give those he left behind the strength to carry on.

  • Like so many others here, my life was made affected by Athus’ influence. I knew him personally here on Cape Cod. I knew him when he was getting ready for so many big life changes…

    Athus helped me understand who and what I am inside. He helped me understand what it means to live and what it means to exist for so long.

    I will always hold on to the aspects of my life that Athus helped bring about. He gave me gifts – some I felt right away, and some that I found a long time after we parted ways.

    Even if I forget the man he was, I will always be grateful for those gifts.

  • Jack Fosch says:

    You will always be remembered
    Immortal
    Forever enshrined
    Forever respected

    I never knew you personally
    Nor even talked to you

    He will treat you well
    Even if you have sinned
    Love is what keeps us together
    Live

  • Sherry says:

    I had the pleasure to meet Athus a couple of times. What I remember most about him is how nice and caring he was. He was truly special and he will be missed by many. If only we knew how long we have with the people in our lives maybe we would take the time to thanks them for all that they have done for us and our families. If Brian were here tonight I would thank him for being such a good friend to my daughter and son in law Sema & Taren. They were truly blessed to find such a great friend in this world. I know that the time they had with Brain will be treasured forever.

  • Navyraptor says:

    The thing I loved most about Athus was the incredible enthusiasm he had for just about everything. His excitement for even mundane things was infectious, I looked forward to it any time I had the opportunity to meet up with him.

    It will be one of my life regrets that I never had the chance to get to know him better.

    Rest in peace, man… The world is a little less bright without you.

  • Seigy says:

    i didnt know Athus to be honest. but i find that, even to people whom i didnt even know, i always thought that if i did i might have done something hell. anything just to keep them here today. im not saying that its definite im not saying its not. all im saying is that its a Possibility. Athus. a prayer to you. may you finally be at rest and happy. you left us too soon and you will be missed.

  • Ulric says:

    I’m one of many big fans of yours. Your one amazing artist. I was hopping to see Athus someday. But he will live on in our heart forever. *hugs and Kisses*
    Love Always,
    Ulric Wolf

  • Cyril Nexaris says:

    I’ve been a fan of Athus’ artwork for years. Regretfully, I never got to know him personally, but he seemed like a good, kind and caring person. The world needs more people like him and he will be dearly missed.

  • Dradolan says:

    Athus was an amazing artist. Creative ideas and changed porn for an unmeasurable amount of time. From what I have seen of him on FA he was a kind man, good sense of humour and good taste in what he drew. His art was actually one of the first that made me liking yiff. Such a beautiful soul, I pray he rests in peace. Wherever that may be…

    ~
    Blue scales and a kind face
    Nice attitude and kind heart
    He has touched us with his talent
    But more importantly, he has touched us with his soul…

    Sleep peacefully you beautiful man/dragon
    Dream on to an endless season of comfort
    Know that what you have done hasn’t vanished.
    Friendships, family, love and joy
    We may hurt of your unexpected departure
    But it is out of love, respect and admiration

    Even though you sleep, to never wake up
    For even though you cannot speak
    You are not gone from our hearts, our thoughts and our love.

    R.I.P Athus Nadorian/Brian Dyer

  • John Inviere says:

    I didn’t know you, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t be miss very, very much. Be at peace. My condolences to the family and friends of Athus. You are in my thoughts.

  • SabreDragon says:

    I was shocked, stunned, and saddened to hear the news of the tragic passing of Athus. I had always been a big long-term fan of his after finding his fantastic artwork on his personal website at dolphinparadise.net well over 5 years ago. There was so much beautiful passion represented with his artwork, especially when he would draw two dragons in love. Viewing these images gave me such a feeling of peace.

    I did not have the honour of knowing Athus personally, or even online. I now regret that after hearing how much of a kind, caring, and giving person he was. How I would love to tell him how his art made me feel. The suddenness of his departure from us is what I find most unbelievable. This was such a harsh reminder to me of the fragility of all of our lives, not knowing when our last day on Earth might be.

    My heart cries out to his family, his closest friends, and of course to his loving mate narse. I hope that the immense outpouring of support from the dragon community, and the furry community in general will provide some degree of solace to their grief, as we too are heartbroken by his loss. We have lost not only a great artist, but an even greater person. He will be sorely missed by all of us, and never forgotten. His art, his spirit, and our memories of him will live forever.

    May your wings find calmer waters, Athus Nadorian…

  • Nekari says:

    The first time i met him, he seemed busy with one of the things he loved the most. But he gave time to say hi and talk…Im glad to have known such a great guy. Where ever he is or the places he goes…may his wings carry him higher and higher, through the clouds and above the stars. We love and miss you Athus….

  • Rahnt says:

    Words cannot describe how sorry I am that you’re gone. Despite never having spoken to you or any of your loved ones, I have the deepest sympathy for them and wish them strength to carry on.

    Wherever you are Athus, I hope you are at peace :)

  • Wolfang says:

    I don’t know what to say , i never met Brian in face to face , and i never spoke to him , but there was something which was going out of his drawings, something incredible , and i’m realy going to miss this, i just hope that all his family , all his friends, and everyone are going to stay safe , and happy, i’m going to miss you Brian, thanks for what you gave me though your drawings, thank you for everything…

  • Elias Tupper (Xcos) says:

    i have had much respect for his talent in art, and in a way i had looked up to him, during my introduction into the fandom, i have found his webpage on FA many times, and i still do respect him

  • simmal032 says:

    I loved his pictures of every gender. :’(
    i followed his work everywhere, on herpy, furaffinity and all of them were not only great… they are (and will be indefinitely) true masterpieces!
    R.I.P Athus… May the Dragon Souls protect your’s. You’ve just left this cold polluted angry world and we’ll miss you forever.
    Now you’re a true Dragon, be very proud of that.

    Who loved him and his art must applaud, and i’m appluding right now…. and everytime i’ll listen his name.

  • draxy says:

    I’m so sorry to hear that athus is gone ;( R.I.P

  • Picasso says:

    It’s weird, I found his page years ago, and I never really paid that much attention to him. Only up until now I talked to him in messages, and he was a funloving person to be around, I loved it… It’s just so sad.

  • drgnmaster1000 says:

    Athus was a wounderfull person and Friend he will be deeply missed by many including my self. I meet Athus & Narse back in late 04 they are both such really good people who im proud i did get to know. Narse i know things are really rought for ya right now and i really offer anything i can to help.

  • legarsraide says:

    I just learnt what happened…I’m under a huge shock now. Athus was an artist I admired, as well for his great skill in drawing than the dreams I made thanks to him. The drawing community has lost one of his best member. All my thought goes to his family and friends.

    Rest In Peace Athus, now the world of drawing will be less shinning without you.

  • Khaskha says:

    Athus,

    I did not know you, or even of your existence, until a close friend of mine informed me. Before I knew it, many more of my dear friends were crying and mourning for your loss, and so was I. You must have been a wonderful soul, and I wish I had the chance to know you. You’ve touched my heart through others and I feel it a privilege to weep in your name.

    Rest in peace dear Athus.

    May the wind sail through your wings and guide you home.

  • tony says:

    sorry for what happened. at least he’s in a better and is very happy. hope you feel better soon

  • Awesome Dragon says:

    Athus’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Athus.
    By doing his art, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Athus was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.
    The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Athus’s success than the fact that much of the world are posting their condolences here. Bad Dragon has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.
    Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Athus have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Athus leaves behind a company that only he could have been a part of, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Bad Dragon. No words can adequately express our sadness at Athus’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.

  • Xiamara says:

    Athus,

    We have never met and yet I too mourn your loss.I am sorry I could never call you friend, though you would have been, but I can call you family of sorts. I come to you today and wish you peaceful winds to where ever you may soar. Live on dear dragon, I will meet with you one day.

  • kenny says:

    a great artist and person left us to soon
    many people will know this dragon flies free in the sky

    may the wing underneath his wings guide him to a new horizon… and may the light shine upon him where ever he is heading too now…
    RIP Athus

  • Wolf says:

    May Mother guide his spirit swifly along the Circle to his next adventure. May She bring the peace and solice of the Seasons to his family and comfort their hearts and spirits as they try and understand the Great Circle.

    I never new this spirit, but his friends have spoken of him from their hearts, which is the greatest statment of love.

    Mother guide your next great journey.

    Blessings Be

    (i apology for my bad English)

  • Kent says:

    Honestly, I never knew Athus. However, I have only ever heard good things about him. Therefore, I am here to say this: I give my greatest of wishes that his friends and family may be given the time of mourning that they need. There is no greater loss than that of a loved one, and I am sorry for it.

    May his spirit shine on forever.

  • Sevrox says:

    It’s terrible that he is no longer among us! I did not know him personally, but I despair when I found out about his departure. Perhaps now is in a better world without violence, evil. This has caused us great pain in our hearts … certainly was a wonderful man, and even greater dragon. It’s sad how you lose one of our. My sincere gondolencje his family, and Narsa.

    May he rest in peace.

  • Kiran Otter says:

    I spoke to Athus a couple times via email, and managed to get a commission of one of my characters from him, which I cherish and always will. Athus will always be a favorite artist, and he’ll live on through his art, for me anyway.

    Rest in peace, Athus.

  • Shanrrosh says:

    I only had the pleasure of exchanging a few emails with Athus, besides that we didn’t really talk much.
    Yet, this really drags my heart down.
    He was deeply respected and loved throughout the kin and furry community.
    He is in no pain now, he lives again somewhere, but those that is left behind..those peaople are the ones who really needs love and care right now.
    People like his mate, Narse.
    Narse, if you are reading this, please be strong. I can’t even imagine how much it hurts to have your mate ripped away like that, but know that you have friends all around you, friends you haven’t even met before, who are all here to support you.
    We will all live again sometime as we have done before, Athus started earlier than the rest of us, but we will all follow in the same prints eventually.
    I hope his next life will be a wonderful one.

  • Oatcake says:

    Although I never got the chance to meet him in person he has been a good friend ever since I met him all those years ago. I wish I could have gotten to know him better but I’m glad he has loving family and friends that will keep him alive in there hearts and minds.
    My very best wishes to his family, mate and friends who I’m sure are remembering all the time shared with Athus.

  • Bahamuth says:

    I heard i from a friend over skype when i woke up today and still cant believe it.
    This is just sad, really, really very sad news, you made so many people happy with your art and with your Awesome job here on Bad-Dragon, not only me will miss you very much and i can only wish you the very best out of my heart and good luck for your future…where ever you are now…
    My apologies go also for you narse and off course his family
    I never got to know you personally (as i wasnt yet in the USA) just from your awesome artwork and stuff that made so many people happy that i´ve seen from you in the internet but anyway it makes me almost cry as i know that you are also a real Dragon like me and many others in the world and i REALLY appreciate the work you did for us and for Bad-Dragon.
    Much Love to you Athus and love to all Dragon-lovers around the world.
    I am so very sorry for you Narse and all your friends that it has come to this, but i am happy because i know that no one leaves this world forever, in our hearts and our memories you will always be alive.
    For now your body and your spirit may Rest in peace…our beloved Dragon Brother until one happy day you will meet all your friends again ;)

  • Chaoseven says:

    Farewell, Athus. You shall not be forgotten, neither by your kind or by all others.

  • It’s taken me a couple of days and a talk with Sarmy to find the strength to post something here, but here I go. I apologize in advance if anything looks off, as it’s very hard for me to keep my composure writing this out.

    When I was seventeen years old, my draconity started to rear it’s head (everything from visions/memories to phantom limbs). Being raised by a scientist and a lawyer, my gut reaction was that there was something deeply wrong with me. I spent day after day holed up in my bedroom desperately searching the Internet for some kind of mental disorder or disease that could explain all of these sudden changes with me. Two weeks in, instead of finding what I was looking for, I ran into Athus’ artwork.

    At first I just found images, and the emotion contained in them led me to track down Athus himself. I read his commentary on his own work, read about who he was as a person, and realized that he was a lot like me. From that point on I ended up discovering an entire community of individuals, all of which shared many similar experiences to my own, and that led to the realization that there wasn’t anything wrong with me – I was just different, for better or worse.

    As I entered adulthood, Athus’ words and works completely permeated many aspects of my life. I’d come home frequently from all sorts of stresses, from the drama and conflict of a broken family to repeated failures in school and employment alike, to find new artwork on websites where he posted. His personality, more specifically his demeanor and attitude towards life, helped me keep going when the psychological odds were stacked so far against me that some doctors feared I would become suicidal.

    As the years passed, my life became no less difficult; I was diagnosed with a form of depression that doctors had never seen before, and to this day have been unsuccessful in treating. I was told by some that I wouldn’t be able to work, and that the government would not help me because they couldn’t classify me. Regardless of these assertions, Athus’ inspiring attitude towards life was integral in my landing a senior QA position at Nintendo of America in Redmond, Washington. It was only then that I actually gathered the courage to track down Athus and speak with him; he had become very popular, and I hadn’t wanted him to think I was some creepy stalker or something, so there was a fair amount of trepidation for me at first. We shared artwork (I had a budding interest in digital photography at the time), and spoke from time to time on a variety of topics.

    Up until present day, Athus and I talked infrequently. He always seemed busy with some project or another, whether it was his artwork, his mate and family, or the company he helped make successful. I spent many of my days never even speaking a word to him, and I now regret each and every one of those missed opportunities. I would tell myself that he was probably too busy for me, or that he had more important people to speak with. The incredible irony of the situation was that my very sense of respect for Athus was what kept me from being as close to him as I wanted to be.

    When I learned of Athus’ passing Wednesday evening, at first I thought it was just someone playing a horrible joke. I saw a local Phoenix news article about the accident, and it wasn’t until speaking with Nemekh that I learned it had actually happened. The sudden realization that Athus was gone sent me into a living nightmare that I still haven’t awoken from. I’ve been spending my hours and days alternating between so many different emotions that it all blurs together – and the more time that passes, the more I realize how much of my life has passed with him.

    I’m telling his family this story because I never knew it myself until Athus died. They say you don’t realize what you’ve lost until it’s gone, and that fact has never held more truth for me than now. Never fighting past the preconceptions I had to get closer to Athus is one of the biggest mistakes of my life, and I’m unsure if I’ll ever be able to reconcile with myself. He and I spoke more than once about the concept of him introducing me to others, Sarmy and Narse especially, and it never came to fruition. While I regret that it took his passing to make me realize my incredible error in judgement, I refuse to make that same mistake twice and I have resolved to do my best to be here for the family as much as possible. I want to get to know all of you as the situation permits, and I hope to call many of you friends in the future; for now, I can only promise that I will be here as much as I can for each and every one of you, without preconception or judgement – Altenia has my phone number and other contact information and I’m available 24/7, no matter what. Anything I can do to help will help me to honor Athus’ memory, and will hopefully help me cope with this too.

    Love you all.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there. I did not die.

    My sincerest deepest thoughts go out to Athus’s friends and family especially his mate. You were an amazing artist and one of my personal inspirations. May the elders guide your spirit to your place in the eternal hall of dragons. Rest well brother of the sky, you will be missed deeply.

  • Electric Talia says:

    Sorry for the second post. I felt the need to say a bit more now that I have had a couple days to compose myself.

    I first met Athus online the first month after I joined Furaffinity.net and began posting my artwork. He was welcoming, warm and cheerful. Heh, he and I were supposed to do an art trade back then, but never got around to it. From there it was really just intermittent chit chat; comments on each other’s art and the like. I first saw him in person at Further Confusion 2009, during a room party where a big group of us watched Zombie Strippers and MST3Ked the movie. He laughed at all my retarded jokes, and little things like that just stick to me sometimes. The second time I got to be around him was Further Confusion 2010, the first year at the Fairmont. The person I was rooming with called me up to Bad Dragon’s room. (Yes, as in Bad Dragon toys. Their site is here Bad-Dragon.com) I hesitated because I was under the impression no one knew me there and I didn’t want to intrude, but was assured it was okay to come up, so I did so. I got up there and shortly after, Varka (Founder of Bad Dragon) made mention that everyone they didn’t know had to leave the room. I hedged a bit and apologized, thinking I had done the very thing I’d aimed not to do. A couple of my other friends who also happened to be in the room asked why I apologized and I explained, “Well, no one in here really knows me at all.” One of my friends piped in with, “No, *everyone* here knows who you are.” I stood dumbfounded, the whole room staring at me. (Fans of my artwork, etc.) Then came Athus’s voice from behind me, “Yeah, in fact I just checked your journal to make sure you were coming.” I looked at him like he’d grown a second head. XD It was a small gesture; a welcoming one that made me feel wonderful and included. I went and had lunch with he and the rest of the Bad Dragon crew, and it was awesome. Athus and I spent quite a bit of time just chatting in one of our mutual friend’s room after that. He left a very lasting impression on me; he was so upbeat, cheerful, bubbly and positive. ^_^ I saw him one last time at the airport where he gave me a hug, and I invited he and his mate, Narse, to come draw with Syrinoth, Tryst, and myself. He said he’d love to, and I was elated. I’d made an awesome new friend.

    He and I spoke quite a bit more often online after that. The last time he and I spoke was about 2 weeks ago and we were geeking out over the new Argonian designs for Skyrim. I will miss him greatly. ~Talia

  • Spacemania says:

    I have to admit, I took time debating on why I should say something here. I met him only once at FC, and even then maybe a dozen words were exchanged. I couldn’t say that I knew him personally, but his death affected me, quite a bit. I had to spend all night and this morning asking myself why, and the conclusion I came up with also is what brings me to say these words here and now.

    Even though I never “knew” him, I knew of him and his treasures that he left behind. As I look back on the impact he made to me, I find myself startled at just how much he had. Despite the lack of dialogue between us his influence on me is still there. His art was extraordinary to me, and the journals and comments, his level of spirituality he had, all had influenced me. That tiny little part that he gave to me though his works of art both in image and writing showed me that there were parts of myself that I wasn’t aware of, that he helped me to discover. In a smaller way he also helped me become more comfortable in the fur community. Granted my wife is mostly responsible for the ladder, he still had a part to play in that.

    Whats significant to me in this is how clear it was to me that so many other people feel similar to how I do. People who would be perfect strangers commenting how profoundly saddened they are at his loss, and I can feel how genuine those comments are and not the run of the mill “RIP” posts. Athus, in his spirit and skill alone managed to profoundly affect those he never met, and that I feel is a rare accomplishment, and the goal of any artist of any kind. As such, that’s what made me come here and leave my words in this journal of love to a man who went before his time. Only a person of such an accomplishment could provoke such an outpouring of emotions so soon and so profoundly.

    Oddly enough, even in his death he helped teach me one last thing, one last contribution to my life. He was only a shade older than myself, and his death made me realize just how precious life is. I have people around me who are starting to turn ill or old and I’ve been scared of loosing them, and I’ve been hiding myself, in a vain effort to avoid the pain of loss. His final lesson is that I can’t do that. His life was full of life, and I should do the same. I need to love and enjoy those I care about most, and fill myself with what I have. I can’t afford to waste what mortal time I have. This lesson that he tragically gave me is in my eyes his final contribution to this world, and I will not waste it.

    Thank you Athus, I regret never having known you personally, but all that I’ve seen though the words and images of so many I feel enlightened enough to have known you in heart and spirit. I hope to see you on the other side someday, but not too soon I hope. I want to help carry on the final gift you gave me, and share that with others. I only hope its what you would have wanted those you left behind to do.

    Peace be with you, and your loved ones.

    I only knew him for a brief time, but his compassion for others and his excitement, brought up my spirits in times of need.

    We all miss you an though you may be gone, you still live on in our hearts and we will keep your spirit alive with your influences and teachings.

    Wishing I had more time to get to know you, but that will have to wait for now. Soar free, feel the wind under your wings, for where the wind carries you, no one knows.

    My deepest condolences to his loved ones and to Narse <3 *hugs* I wish you the best, he may be only but a memory now, so treasure those memories.

    Athus, was…a great person, such as the likes ive never seen before. He moved many people, he was positive in every way i know of.

    He is a person to be remembered. He will always exist in my heart.

    Without Athus here, life seems so much less colorful.

    To the family and close ones of Brian Dyer.
    You have emy sympathy.

    I never got to know you personally, but a life ended short, is a life ended to soon. From all that I have heard, you were a good person and an even greater friend. I only wish I got the pleasure to meet you. May you rest in peace and find happiness in the next life.
