Posted on the AM e-mail Reflector: On April 4, Brian was taken to the emergency room thinking he may have had a minor stroke, since he was encountering some difficulties. By 7am the next morning, he had undergone brain surgery with a very grim prognosis of a non operative stage 4 GBA tumor. Due to complications, we will not be able to operate business as usual with AF4K CRYSTALS. We will not be taking any more orders personally, but the family would like to assist in helping those who have outstanding orders who have had difficulties contacting us or have not had orders fulfilled. We apologize for any inconvenience. If there is anyone who have not received their merchandise, please contact Brian's XYL. The best effort will be made to remedy the situation as soon as possible. The information is: Marie Carling WB4QBL 321-262-7151 email@example.com There are others interested in the purchase of the business including AF4K Crystals domain and inventory. For many years Brian and Marie have enjoyed running the business and it would be a gift to both to know it would continue to provide for others. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 73's Marie Carling I knew Brian personally when he was living in Nashville. He operated some AM, and had bought a Globe King 400, but life got in the way and he sold it before ever getting it on the air. Soon thereafter, he moved to Florida. I had a nice visit with him one afternoon while down there when we took the kids to see Disney World. Over the years, he supplied me with several original old-style round Bliley and Valpey crystals that work in my HF-300 rig. Very sad news indeed. Let's hope for a miraculous recovery.
