Always enjoyed my telephone conversations with Brett over the years. Although we were normally on the phone talking business, Mooch always took a few minutes to talk about something fun we had in common - for us it was dirt bike riding - and also see how things were going. He will be greatly missed. My sincere thoughts, prayers and condolences to all the Reid family and friends.
