Celebrating the life of our friend and colleague, Brian Purdy!
Brian left us suddenly on August 27th. He was more than just a colleague to many of us, but a true friend. He was an amazing, caring, and loving person, and always made everone feel welcome. His passing is a great loss to all – he will be sorely missed.
