To all the families and friends of John "Hugh" Briand, my prayers and thoughts are with you as you go down this sad journey of loss. His pipes are silent but they will be remembered by many and recalled when others continue on in his footsteps. Many times happenstance placed me at the Pembroke Legion branch 72 where I listened to Hugh send out his voice through the pipes and bring me back to my childhood days living in Cape Breton. I thanked him then and I thank him now for his dedication to the pipes and to Canada. Stay Safe and don't be afraid to cry and talk to one another it is part of the healing process that we all must go through when a loved one dies.

Hello Cuz’n Ursala and family,

You have been through a lot in the last little while. Sadly, I know how it feels to loose someone to soon.
Although it has been one crazy year (what with all of the isolating) I hope you take some comfort in knowing that you are not alone. All of the love and prayers you sent my way are heading to all of you now.

The biggest and best memory I have is likely the oldest memory l have of Cuz’n Hughie. He introduced me to power sports. It wasn’t called that thirty five years ago (or more). We had gone for a drive to visit family. I sat quietly and listened inattentively to the adults talk. Then Hughie said ‘come outside young fella l’ve got something you might be interested in. How’d you like to ride the four wheeler around for a little bit?’ What a thrill! I had to wear a helmet, drive on the agreed upon course/track, and be careful. As my confidence grew so did the speed l traveled at. I was called over to the end of the driveway where l had kicked up some gravel. ‘You see this?’ He asked. ‘This is a little to fast. You’re not Sterling Moss (Scottish race car driver). Slow down a little and remember to take the corners.’ He didn’t get excited, he just explained the importance of safety and how the fun disappears if you get hurt. He payed attention to the bored little kid. He payed attention to my progress as well. Cuz’n Hughie encouraged and educated not just back then when giving a kid the thrill of his young life, but every time l saw him.
He is missed, but not forgotten.

Good Bless you all,

Peter Knickle
