I had the pleasure of having Brian as my patient for many years, and I want to extend my deepest sympathy to his family, especially his Mom Cindy! Brian clearly had the best Mom in the world and I love and admire her! I loved that I had the opportunity to know Brian, to be with him often, and to share in his life. He was always a pleasure to see! My prayers go out to you, along with a hug of love and friendship! Dr. Mark Stelzer
