Brian's Memorial Garden

$6,825 of $5,750 goal

Raised by 125 people in 68 months
My fiancee, Brian Christian Williams, Ken and Rosaria's son, Pia and Scott's brother, and an amazing colleague and best friend to many, passed away on Sunday, July 17, 2011.  For over a year, we have been passionately envisioning a peaceful backyard where we could both appreciate the outdoors, play with our dog Butters, and enjoy being together. This backyard represented our dreams for the future.

Family, friends, colleagues and those whose lives Brian has affected have been asking how they can be involved, so I've created this website to bring all of us together to honor his vision.  Any plant or material you purchase will be planted directly in the backyard and will serve as a testament to Brian's memory and his hopes for our new family's future.

With love,
Janet

All lumber is now cut and the planks got their first coat of primer. The boardwalk is going to look pretty freaking cool. Today we need to stain/seal the rest of the wood, pick up plants, and fix up the damn deck. Thank you for all your help. We are so close to our goal!!!!!
If you haven't already, please send us some sand, cement or 2x6s. If you would like to stop by and help, there is always something to do at the house!
