The story of Brendan McDonnell's resilience in the face of his father's tragic suicide has emerged as a beacon of inspiration for countless individuals. In 2018, I had the privilege of meeting Brendan's family and conducting an interview. Despite the heartbreaking effects of Alzheimer's disease, Brendan's grandmother, Nanny Lynne, graciously shared her reflections. Though her memory faltered, she chose to recite the poignant poem she had composed for her son's funeral, moving everyone present at the family gathering.
