I was so very sorry to hear of Brian's passing. He was a kind, helpful and good man. I know he will be missed by his family and friends. I had the opportunity to get to know and spend time with Brian over ten years ago when he worked with Sam and Kim. I know how special he was to them. I am so very sorry for your loss.
