Sheryl and family, my sincere condolences for the loss of Brian. Not sure if you remember me, but I worked for Brian for a short time at Genix, many years ago. I believe he was instrumental in me being hired there. Brian kept me, Bob Zanke, and Dave Borsos under control. Over the years, whether at Genix or CA, we remained friends. I shall cherish his friendship.

God bless.
