Man, I just don't know what to say. While I did not know Brian, or his family, my heart absolutely aches for them!
I have three kids of my own, including a 9 year old son. I have been coaching his little league team for several years now. We LOVE the beach, and have been to Fernandina several times.
Instances like this are always in the back of your mind, but you go out in the surf anyway.
You always like to think you will react in a manner such as Brian did, absolutely unselfish....HEROIC!!
My family and I want to extend sincerest condolences to the Wynne family. May God be with you during this extremely difficult time!
