I met Brian many years ago, in an undisclosed location :-)
Hes given me advice, interviewed me for articles he wrote for the GLT, helped me through a difficult day or two, he was always direct and at times brutally honest, he would tell me these long drawn out stories about his mother, but it always seemed to come back to the situation I was going through. Brian was battling cancer and I am so happy he is no longer in pain. I will miss him greatly.
Death has surrounded me the past couple of months. Its one thing that saddens me beyond measure.
