Regarding the front-page article on my trespassing at Glenn Summit Co., there are two sides.
I was on the phone recently with a friend who lives in Glenn Summit. He spoke with the board members about what has been going on with me. I didn’t realize that people who live there were unhappy with a large memorial at the crash site.
You see, when you lose a child you don’t see anything but your own pain. I did not see the bad position in which I put the Fairview Township Police; Chief Joe Intelicado was trying to keep the peace, and I only thought of me.
I was very grand in the paper because I want the world to know Brian’s story and I did not want it to fade away. I could care less about my picture, as long as people would see Brian.
The woman who took my picture in the woods was doing a job for their community, and she comes up looking evil. I want to say I am sorry for any trouble and I will downsize the memorial so it is not so grand. The people who pass by will not have to be reminded of the horrible tragedy that happened there.
I could not lose, because I am the dad who lost his child; but I do have compassion for others and their rights. And I will respect that.
I do want to tell everyone that I am not angry and hope one day to make peace with anyone I offended in my grief. I will walk my dog at the park near my home and try to limit my visits to the crash site.
I hope that the readers will cut these women some slack and treat them respectfully. I have no hard feelings and know we are all God’s children.
