44 years ago, a little blue-eyed boy named Brian Cecil Clinebell was born in Orlando. On September 18, 2011 Brian passed away as a result of his battle with cancer. His family and friends were by his side when he drifted off. He is survived by his parents, Janice and Buddy Mills; grandmother Rachel Collins-Perry; siblings Linda and Sandy, as well as Carolyn, Michael, Jimmy and Monica; and his niece and nephew Kaydi and Kalen. He is preceded in death by his father, Cecil Clinebell and siblings, Mark, Joanne and Missy. Brian could accomplish anything he set his mind to do. He lived for and loved his family and friends. Brian graduated from Evans High School and still remained close with many of his friends from school. He believed and saw the good in everyone. He loved football (especially the Gators), Nascar racing, theme parks, wrestling and just hanging out with his friends. He died as he lived, every one's friend. Brian's life would seem too short to many, but those who were with him at the end of his precious life knew he fought to the end. We all wish we had one more HUG & one more laugh with him but if he could say something to us it would be, "Don't cry, I'm Free and guess what I am not in any more Pain". We will miss his voice, his touch, his kindness, his understanding and his love. In our hearts a memory will always be kept and we will never forget. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 24, 2011 at 11:00 at Powers Drive Baptist Church, 3311 N. Powers Drive, Orlando FL.
Oh yeah one more thing, just a little note for my family and friends.
To My Dearest Family
Some things I'd like to say but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with God above where there's no more tears or sadness there is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on Earth was through God picked me up and hugged me and He said I welcome you. It's good to have you back again you were missed while you were gone as for your dearest family they'll be here later on. I need you here so badly as part of My big plan, there's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man. then god gave me a list of things He wished for me to do and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you. And I will be beside you every day and week and year and when you're sad I'm standing there to wipe away the tear. and when you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night. when you think of my life on Earth and all those loving years because you're only human they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry it does relieve the pain remember there would be no flowers unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you of all that God has planned, but if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. but one thing is for certain though my life on Earth is o're, I am closer to you now than I ever was before. and to my very many friends trust god knows what is best, I'm still not far away from you, I'm just beyond the crest. There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb but together we can do it taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too that as you give unto the world so the World will give to you. If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain. And now I am contented that my life it was worthwhile knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile. so if you meet somebody who is down and feeling low, just lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go. When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind, I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. and when you feel the gentle breeze or the wind upon your face, that's me giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace. and when it's time for you to go from that body to be free, remember you're not going, you are coming here to me. and I will always love you from that land way up above, Will be in touch again soon. P.S. God sends His love.
To my baby brother Brian, I would have never thought I would be doing this for you. From the day you were born I was always the big sister and wanted to protect you from any harm. You were an angel sent from heaven. Your blue eyes, smile and love for others will be missed. You will be forever etched in my heart. I love you so much.
Oh Bri Bri too many things left to do and say. I will always hold you in my heart. Janice, Linda, Sandy & Buddy, thank you for sharing him with all of us. Always remember that radiant smiling attitude of his.
To my awesome friend I shared 32 years with . I will miss you so much. I remember the times we shared.I will never forget OUR TIMES together. Like stealing buddy's liquor to playing basketball all the time, to chasing the tourist girls on International Drive and you introducing me to my lovely wife . I love you and I will always think of you . I MISS U SO MUCH ....... truly your brother ...
My baby brother Brian,you may not have any idea how much i love you.My role as the big sister was helping you learn how to throw a football or baseball.That was the great joy in my life.i will miss your laugh,your beautiful eyes and most of all you.Ilove you forever
Brian,though I didn't know you as long or as well as other, what I did know is this: you were a "southern gentleman" as well as a gentle man. You were kind and friendly, and a wonderful son and brother.Thank you for your kindness and my prayer for you is that you are in the arms of God, peaceful and painfree.
My heart goes out to your family and friends, and you will be missed by all who knew you, even though you will live in our hearts forever. I am blessed to have known you.
44 years ago my tiny son (5 pounds 5 ounces) was born. His name was Brian Cecil Clinebell. His dad was so happy after having 2 daughters, he actually picked up the doctor and swung him around. That was the beginning of my little boy.
He was a blond, blue eyed special little child. He was so blond and had the biggest blue eyes you ever saw. He was spoiled by everyone in the family. I remember in the 6th grade that he won every award that could be given out. Talk about being proud, I sure was that day.
As he grew up he loved sports. I remember one time he was playing basketbal on a team when he got the ball and put it in the wrong team's basket. He got booed for that one!
Later on he loved to go to Sarasota and watch his niece and nephew play. Kaydi and Kalen were very good and Brian loved to watch them play.
Brian always had friends over to the house, both male and female. Brian never had any children but would have made a great daddy.
Brian had a horrible cancer which they found in December 2010. He has been in the hospital so many times this year. He has suffered so much. He never gave up and until the end thought he would be alright. His family and friends were around him at the end.
I will never forget that day. My heart is so, so sad. His daddy is taking this so very hard and I pray for peace for my family.
Little Boy Brian rest in peace my darling, no more pain for you. Just wait for me, my son, I'll be with you in Heaven.
Love, Your Mom
To one of my best friends all through high school and who helped me with my dad when he had cancer. I have never forgotten your kindness/ support during those hard times. I truely wish we would have kept in touch more often after high school. I did have the pleasure of seeing Brian a month or so ago at his house along with seeing Janice and Buddy who are nicest people in the world. Everyone was doing so well. I know your with God and watching over all of us. Brian you will be truely missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family.
Brian, what to say? that has'nt already been said about you. Your a wonderful person, sweet, kind, big hearted and most of all lovable and oh so handsome. You will be greatly missed,and that knockout smile that would always bring me up if I was down.You rest now. Miss and Love you dearly. Buddy, Janice and family I am so sorry for your loss, you all are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless :)
Brian, REST IN PEACE and GOD BLESS. You will be greatly missed.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Please know that God will comfort and sustain you. Psalms 34:18 says that He is near to those broken at heart and saves those crushed in spirit. Please keep His promises close to your heart. I offer my deepest sympathies to your entire family.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Brian sounded like a really good person. It's sad that you lost him so soon. May "the God of all comfort" be with you during this difficult time. We look forward to a time when death, mourning, and tears will be wiped away forever. Please consider these Bible verses, and I hope you find it as comforting and encouraging as I did. (Rev. 21:4 and Acts 24:15).
