I want to send my deepest sympathies to Brian's family. Brian was one of my closest friends in high school, and I am shocked and saddened that he has passed. Unfortunately, we lost touch after the first couple years of college. He was always very kind, intelligent, and philosophical. Whenever I hear a song by ACDC, Rush, or The Doors, I immediately think of Brian. I have many memories with Brian, from going to the Sadie Hawkins dance in 10th grade, to going to the ACDC concert with Brian and Billy, to his Dad taking us to see Rocky Horror Picture Show. On another occasion, a group of us, about 10 people, went out for pizza. We inadvertently left without paying. Although there was no way that the pizza place would have ever been able to track us down, Brian went back a few days later and paid the bill. He was a very special, unique individual. From reading the entries on this site, it sounds like his life was filled with many friends, co-workers, and family. I always thought we would eventually re-connect and be able to catch up on our lives. I'm very sad that I will not get that chance. May he rest in peace knowing that he will be missed by all who knew him.
