He also enjoyed video games and online gaming with his friends and family. Brett also enjoyed playing Canasta as well as other card and board games with family and friends. As a goal during the year Brett and Rick tried very hard to hit as many roller coasters as they could. He also tried to blackmail his mother numerous times to get on them and sometimes it worked.
