Bryan was a great mentor and guided me through many steps in my life and career. When I was in a weird place he would always make my mood be better. Pure genius, if you ask me. Always knew what to say or how to help you figure out a problem. Edison would bow to my dude Harvey! Thanks for the everything you did for me...

How do you shout loud enough so that God knows and gives my husband this message. The Love of my Life, who treated me as a equal even knowing he was a genius and I was total southern girl. He was highly respected in his long career as Chief Engineer for Fox TV. My heart will not ever stop looking for him it is that deep. Till I see you again my Man rest assure you were the Best of Me
