You know somebody is REALLY good when they have been gone for several years and you still miss working with him, and benefitting from the great work he did. But, that is the case with Brian. His willingness to go above and beyond what would have been expected of him made him extremely valuable. His ability to see the big picture combined with his work ethic and talent contributed to many successful projects. And, I think it is important to note that Brian always had a positive attitude –– I could count on Brian to be supportive in every way he could. Yes, I still miss working with him!
