Brian is one of my oldest and dearest friends. He is family. There are so many wonderful things I could say about Brian, but I am finding it difficult to distill my feelings into a short blurb for this blog. I think I’m finding it difficult because there is no way for you to know Brian, without knowing him - and I wish everyone reading this could know him.
If you are one of the fortunate ones to call him friend, then you know he is kind, gentle, and brilliant. He is the most brilliant man I know - but is also the most humble.
I have known for many years that it would take a very special person to match Brian. Someone who understands him intellectually and challenges him to grow, but also someone who is sensitive yet hilarious -she would have to have a great sense of humor. Who is this impossible woman? I am happy to say she exists - and is wonderful. She is all of those things and much more.
Nola and Brian - you two are amazing, and you are amazing together. Congratulations - I can’t wait to see you again.
