I was saddened to hear of Brian's passing. Having know Brian personally and professionally, he was a kind soul and a true gentleman. A journeyman.

My sincerest condolences to his family. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
~ Mary Elizabeth Frye

Kind and Hearfelt Regards,

Brian was a wonderful man with a generous heart towards his family and friends. I consider myself fortunate to have known him. My condolences go out to his family and friends. I stand ready to help them in any way that I can in this difficult time.

The poet Robert Burns said it well:

An honest man here lies at rest,
As e’er God with his image blest:
The friend of man, the friend of truth;
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm’d,
Few heads with knowledge so informed:
If there’s another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.
