This is something I wrote for/ about my cousin Brian after he was killed last July.

Billy Joel said it best,

"Only the god die young."

That couldn't have been more true for Brian; only, twenty-four and already he had accomplished so much. A hard-drive designer. He was working on the hard drive for the 40GB iPod when he died. He was the one that even the senior employees would come to with questions. And when he was working he was spending every minute enjoying the beautiful Colorado outdoors. He was a champion competitive water skiier. He could snow ski like no one I know and snowboard just as well. He wakeboarded. He hiked. He biked. He biked. He biked.

Maybe he shouldn't have biked so much....

He rode the same path everyday. Everyday. But this time it just wasn't his day.
