Even though I didn't know him outside of SQL Team, his lively and effervescent character and his affection for his family came through in his forum posts and I felt like I knew him. I am going to miss him and that energy.
Tara, thank you for conveying our collective condolences.
He was rancorous. I won't be missing him. May God have mercy on his soul.
Brett was liked and respected by many, as is evident from the many many condolences being offered on many different venues. He was a strong contributor to this forum and others, who offered his help and advice without asking anything in return. You will be lucky if as many are aware are of your life and passing, and care enough to speak about it.
