I am a friend of Brian's, and I only learnt yesterday of his sad passing exactly a year ago. Last night, I went to Brian's Facebook page because I wanted to let him know I would be in Addis next month. To my shock, I discovered, he is no longer with us. My sincere, and very belated, condolences to the family.

I met Brian when was he training for his posting in DC in 2007. We stayed in touch while he was away. He was always unfailingly courteous and polite. He had such a zeal for international diplomacy, for learning new languages and cultures, above all, for being an ambassador for the United States. I think he was a model diplomat and a really great human being.

I will miss him terribly, but I will take comfort from the fact that he will continue to inspire generations of those who want to make this world a better place.

My prayers to the Adkins family. I knew Mike & Todd in school. Family loss of a loved one is difficult. My mother's friend bought me a plaque I would like to share with you.

Dear Adkins Family,

We had the honor of living with Brian in Tunis when he and Rachel served as interns at the US Embassy. Words cannot capture our thoughts about Brian—-he was a man of infinite talent—-but we want to share some memories of our summer together.

Brian was soulful and silly. We would easily move from intense discussions about religion in the modern world to theatrical performances by the master thespian from Columbus. He was a true virtuoso, equally comfortable giving perfect renditions of Phantom of the Opera and Chris Farley's Matt Foley. He was unforgettable and beloved by everyone. David and I were the last interns to leave Tunis, and when we bid farewell to the kiosk owner around the corner from our house, he asked, “where is Brian?” He, like all of his other fans in Tunis, was devastated to hear that Brian had left the country.

You have a lot to be proud of. Brian's memory will forever be a blessing for all of the people he touched, and he will live on in all of the stories we tell.
