Welcome to the Brian Matters Book Store


The book takes you on a journey through both my son’s life as well as portions of my own. You will see through my eyes the shocking events that took place the day of my son’s death as well as live through that unspeakable night and the days, weeks and months that followed. You will glance into the investigation surrounding the sale of hard liquor to my son and his friends the day of his death as well as learn the shocking facts surrounding teenage binge drinking. You will glean into the heart wrenching pain of losing a child as you read through my journals and gain a deeper appreciation for the life you have now and for the loved ones that surround you. Lastly and most importantly, it is my hope that this book will inspire people on many different levels, not only for the betterment of themselves but for the betterment of others as well. The night he died, my son Brian made a mistake and that one mistake cost him his life. That is the harsh reality of teenage drinking. And yet from this tragedy has come guidance and hope for others not to make the same mistake. I hope the life experiences exemplified in this book will bring about positive change for all to benefit from someday and in some small way make the world a better place for all to live in. As Brian once wrote, “Life. One word that means everything to humans. Life is precious, and it is easy to forget that sometimes.” This book is a must read for all Parents and Teenagers alike!
