    I will miss Brian. I was honored when he asked me to teach the basics of search and rescue to his Landis officers. I know from private conversations how proud he was of his kids. I will always remember him as a man of integrity and one who did not take the easy way out of things, regardless of the consequences. Thanks for the example, Brian! Prayers for the family as you prepare for the real new normal.
