I was shocked and saddneed to learn of Brian's passing. Although I never knew him personnaly, I felt I knew him through his newspaper. I looked forward with anticipation to, and read the Border Tribune from cover-to cover every other week. We will miss him.

Blew me away, Brian sent me the blog during ball season just after he made it. Everytime we came down to play ball I had to bug him about putting Jeremy's picture on the blog. He was a great sports guy although I only knew him as the most die hard slo pitch umpire I had ever met ( he stood out in the rain with us while we played ) and now I understand why. Brian will be missed, thank you for allowing me to get to know him.
