From: Stan Anderson
Relation: Worked together

I am so thankful that I was able to visit Brian in Sunnybank prior to his passing. I have many fond memories of our work life with Weyerhaueser, on and off the job. His excellent work ethic was only surpassed by his wonderful sense of humor. I know he will be missed. Condolences to all the family.
