I will  miss Brian Keller. Over the years we met and discussed many 
issues in the Florida Keys but when Brian transferred here to St. 
Petersburg he became a vital and reachable resource for discussion on 
many biological issues.  I often walked down to his office to bounce 
my latest off-beat idea off Brian. He had a knack of seldom changing 
his facial expression no matter how over-the-top my  idea, or rant, 
might be. He would then proceed to explain the facts  without ever 
saying I was just plain crazy. I always walked away feeling happy and 
enlightened.  We will certainly miss Brian here at the College of 
Marine Science. The Sanctuary lost a good spokesman and a great 
scientist.  Gene
