I never met Bill Brand. I won't get to now and as I've spent the majority of my time awake this morning reading eulogies and his own words, I am overwhelmed with sadness for everyone who hoped and waited for a recovery following his February 8th accident.
As I was reading through some of his writing, I quickly came across this little fact which I wanted to share with those that are toasting him tonight.
I didn't know at that time that Bill had passed away in the early morning hours.
I actually have to head to Northern Liberties in a bit. I think I am going to make a stop at the foodery pick up the real San Fransisco treat and toast a man who is already awfully missed by many and be thankful for every day.
