Brett was a whiz w/ Photoshop. Here's a self portrait he did of himself using it. I just think it's the coolest thing. People have said it reminds them of a CD cover. If Brett had of kept up with his drumming he could have probably cut an album some day. He was an excellent drummer and I never got tired of listening to him. Most parents hate the idea of drums but not me. One of my favorite things when he was younger (all the way thru grade 8) was to go watch him perform in the band concerts at school. I remember his band teacher telling me he was a "little prodigy". She said "You give Brett a sheet of music and BAM, he's done, got it all right, while the other kids are still trying to figure out where to start." Later he auditioned for the State Honors Band and made it! No surprise there. Whatever Brett set his mind to, he made it happen. No prodding from Mom or Dad to do something. He was the most self motivated kid ever. I always wondered how I got so lucky. I now wonder how I could be so unlucky to have lost him at such a young age, and for no good reason. I tell myself every single day that the 17 years he was here with us were the most incredible years of my life. I am so grateful and thankful that I could be with him for that short time.
