For those looking for Brian here on his page, he left all social media, including USA.Life. It was not about leaving this site, but about leaving all of social media behind. He is doing well. Last I communicated with him, which was several weeks ago, he was restarting his business in California and wanted me to pass along his best wishes to the Friends he had on USA.Life.
Selfishly, I hope Brian returns to this site, but am pleased he is doing well.
