I just wanted to pass along my condolences to all of those whose lives were touched by Brian, even in the smallest way. As soon as I heard about what had happened at Virginia Tech, my first thought was to check here to see if Brian was ok. I'd been checking back throughout the day hoping to hear that he was fine. As I'm sure many of you felt, when I found out that he was a victim of this senseless act, I felt my heart in my stomach. I never met Brian, but we had a number of great conversations. I had the pleasure of butting heads with him with the rivalry of our two schools and also had the pleasure of talking Tigers baseball while I was also away at school. I've had a tremendous amount of respect for him, not only for the insight and intelligence he displayed, but also the quality of his character. He was a genuine person and the outpouring of emotion by those near and far from him is a reflection of that. Brian had alot to give this world whether it be through family, friends, or in his career as an engineer. My heart goes out to Brian's family and all of those who are feeling his loss. I hope that each and every person who knew him, talked to him, or has now come to know who he was and what he was giving to this world will carry on his spirit. Hokie, Hokie, Hi! V-P-I!
