Brian, I am so sorry about the loss of your Dad. His legacy is a family tree consisting of you and all the Peckins, Moodys and all those
who follow in your footsteps. Considering how successful and wonderful you all are, I don't think any father could have done better. You must be very proud of him. My thoughts really are with you now and all the family. Please give my love to your Mom.
