Rest in peace Brian. My condolences to the family. My husband purchased a lot of his fly tying material and will think of him often.
Ange Tim, Paul, & Mary Ellen. Wish I could do or say something that would make this easier. The only thought that comes to mind is that your sadness and hurt is a reflection of the feelings that you had for Brian and he had for you. I hope you can Take some comfort in that.
Love to you all
