    My deepest condolences to the Michaels family. Brian, I will never forget all the fun and crazy times we had together at the jail (and at HBH) for so many years! I could tell so many stories, and most of them no one would believe! You have no idea how grateful I am that we were able to talk recently, and I won’t forget you. Rest in peace friend.
