It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that we all lost our best friend. Lin Brehmer fought cancer as long as he could. He passed early Sunday morning, peacefully, with his wife and son by his side. Today at 10am, his XRT family celebrated the incredible life of our best friend in the whole world. We hold each other up through this heart-breaking time. Lin would want that. Take nothing for granted.
