To Gray Flannel, my elementary school boyfriend, I am so very sad and sorry to hear of your passing. I will always have great memories of what a sweet, adorable, and smart person you were. I am very sad that we did not stay in touch over the years as adults and I will always cherish my memories of you and the shirt that started the nickname. Thank you for being a great childhood friend to me. You will be missed. Bobcats forever! Sending my love to Brian’s family and friends.

Johanson, met you when I was 21. Fortunate to have you attend my wedding nine years later, and join you at at least 2 others I can think of... and incredibly lucky and grateful for SO many other memories in between. You were top shelf before I even knew what that meant and the very definition of generous. Ashamed for my lack of correspondence and communication in these recent busy years, and can only hope you know how much so many loved (and still love) you...

In Hocus Pocus my Brother...I will remember the good times...There where many at San Diego State...Youth is fleeting, but we don't know to "enjoy the moment" until its too late...The days are long and the years are short in life...Glad we shared some good times my Brother-

Brian, I always looked up to you since I only have a few cousins, we are both bro’s and we always had so much fun hanging out. I learned so much from you, surfing, music, how to dress - about how to be cool and grown up but still be relaxed. Had a blast with you in Pomona, Carlsbad, and Los Angeles techno undergrounds following the music and looking for talent. You are Gone way too fast it’s a tragedy., but you would have just rolled with it. We are all so busy and get spread out to the ends of the earth. Brian was an amazing guy and an integral part of our family. Wherever we all end up when we go, I can imagine Brian waving me onboard with a warm ear to ear smile, a couple of side splitter boys room jokes and a thorough tour of the digs. Miss you cuz! Say hi to mom and nana and the villa park dachshunds - love curt Johanson. prayers and heartfelt sympathies to noel and char and kim . . if anything I can do just ask. many happy memories with Brian and all of my OC Johanson family.

RIP brotha. The Nunez family and many many others that all loved Brian send their sincerest condolences. Arguably the most intelligent man I've ever met and worked with.
Hope you are in a better price, Brian!
