I just received a phone call from a friend/colleague in Vero Beach. Carol\'s nephew was on his way to NY with his dad to see a specialists about his heart troubles. Apparently, he goes to see this specialist 4 times per year. Unfortunately, he died on the way there. Brian was 13.
Ken lost his wife a few years ago and now to lose his son is just heart breaking. Please keep the Ligon family in your prayers during this difficult time. Thanks guys!

Thanks guys! I spoke with his aunt on monday and she is very greatful. Dad Ken is taking it very hard; Brian died as the plane was getting ready to land in NY. he was going to be put on a heart & lung transplant list. Here\'s the obit his aunt sent to me:
Brian Woods Ligon, age 13, passed away on Wednesday, Jan 2, 2008 in the loving arms of his father, Ken, and stepmother, Kim. Brian was born in Miami, FL, and was adopted when he was two days old. This was the happiest day for Ken and Brianís mother, Carol, who sadly passed away when Brian was 8 years old.
Everyone who ever met Brian was immediately his friend. As an only child he adored his extended family and loved to visit his cousins and grandparents. He always wanted a big family and was so proud when he gained 5 step-brothers. Brian was a loving and happy young man who enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his dad. His passions in life were lighthouses, music, horseback riding, and especially trains. He had planned to be a train conductor. His favorite playtimes were spent with his special stuffed animal, Cow-Cow, and his transformers, trains, building toys, and video games. He loved traveling, seeing new places, boating and beaching. He visited New York City often while having treatment at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital and had great times visiting the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Intrepid aircraft carrier, and taking a boat trip around Manhattan. Last summer he took a much desired trip along Route 66 and saw many wonderful places in the western USA. Brian attended Osceola Magnet School and then Suncoast School where he was in 7th grade. He belonged to Adventure Guides and Community Church.
Brian was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.
Visitation will be held at Stunk Funeral Home on Sunday January 6th from 11- 12. A service will be held at Community Church at 2PM with a burial at Crestlawn Cemetary.
