In Remembrance

Just received an email from Joe that he was left a voicemail on the passing of LIRA's Attorney and one of our original visionaries.

Brian C. Koenig, Esq.
Rest in peace our brother. You will be missed.

More information is on the LIRA website.

I looked for more information but could not find it.. what did he pass from?

I spoke to him on the phone almost 2-3 weeks ago about getting help on a website I needed legal advice on.. wow I cannot believe this. RIP my friend.. he was there when it all started up

Wow, this is sudden--my sympathies to the family. I never met Brian myself, but from the sounds of it, he was a relatively young guy. What a shame.

May he rest in peace

A lesson to be learned by all.
Open your mind and heart.
Follow that which pulls at your heart and intrigues your mind.
Look for the dark places where you can shine light.
For it is these things that you will be remembered for.

All be well

I did not know him, but I am sorry to hear of his passing. It sounds like he will be greatly missed.

Brian died very young. I'd say about 35 years old. It's hard to believe that 7 years have already passed.
