To Brian's family, I am so sorry to hear this sad news of Brian's death. Brian and I dated briefly while at Lehigh. I remember listening to his show on campas radio. He introduced me to UB40 and Jimmy Cliff. It seems he lived out his passion and left a legacy of helping others. Brian was always a good friend and always there whenever I needed to talk. I will always remember Brian and wish ha had more time with you.Posted: 01/05/2013 by Marietta Grother of Robbinsville, NJ, USA

Dear Jen, Brendan and Matthew,
I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Brian was so intelligent, and always had a ready smile. I remember Brendan, Matthew and my younger son Isaac playing chess and sharing pizza together at Anthony Beach a few summers ago. Brian was so proud of his sons. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Dear Jen, Words can't describe how sorry I am to hear of Brian's passing. Seems like yesterday when you first met, so hard to believe the boys are 10 years old now. He was a wonderful person, always a big smile on his face and those bright eyes. All of my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. God Bless each of you.

To the Foley Family, I did not know Brian very well but feel that I knew him through the stories and conversations I had with his wife, who I worked with daily. It has been a struggle for Jen these past few months and I feel she often saw work as a place to seek comfort and refuge from Brian's daily battles with this horrible disease. As Brian struggled with his cancer, he and Jen's biggest concern, were their boys. Jen loved her husband very much, but the two of them, loved their boys, Brendan and Matthew, even more. Brian was their hero and always will be. I lost my father at a young age and understand their feelings of not knowing and how worried they are at this sad time. It is very hard for a young boy to understand their father's mortality and that the man they saw as the strongest in the world, has now left them. It is important that they never forget, he is no longer in pain and no longer hurting. He will always be there watching over them and keeping them safe. I extend my deepest sympathies and express my condolences to the entire Foley family. God Bless You all and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

To Brian's family - my deepest and profound sympathy. Brian worked for me as a work study student at Lehigh University for four years and was like another son to me. He often came to my house for dinner and enjoyed playing sports with my children who remember him well. We kept in touch periodically throughout the years, and just caught up this summer again. There are no words to describe his loss to you and the boys or those of us who loved him too. I loved Brian and he was such a good person. I am so honored to have known him and had him in my life for the short time I had with him. God be with you all.Posted: 01/03/2010 by Sally Schray of Fountain Hill, PA,

I am writing to send condolences to the entire family of Brian Foley. I grew up with Brian and went to Tansey school with him. We played in the same neighborhood from Reading st to langley st. and everytime i think of the old neighborhood I think of Brian and the entire Foley family. the Mcdonald family, sullivans etc. and to read that Brian has passed away really hits home. I hadn't seen Brian in a long time but the fact I will not see him in the future really hurts. God Bless to the Foley family.Posted: 01/03/2010 by Paul Hart of Fall River, Ma, U.S.A.
