Congratulations Brian, Where did that 3 years go? Yet you and Patty have achieved so much in those 3 years.

Now to the next 30!

At my first meeting with Dr. Byrd in 2015 at the James I spotted you in the waiting area and introduced myself. I had been following you for a while at that time. You have inspired me to get smart, stay smart and never give up. Thanks Brian. Congrats!
