I didn't realize until now that Brian died in late 2019.  I'm so sorry!  You had been with Brian almost your entire life.  What a difficult time to lose him!  I'm sure you're still adjusting.  Brian brought energy and humor wherever he went and the two of you seemed like a hand in a glove. 

Love and God's peace,

Joan Harvey Nelson
