Brian's best childhood friend lives in Utah with his family, and Brian has always been like an uncle to Larry's four kids. They lovingly call him UB (in reference to the movie "Uncle Buck"--but Uncle Brian). We started our family a bit later, as our oldest child is five and Larry's oldest daughter has been married for the same amount of time!
Brian took the opportunity to fly to Utah by himself for the weekend to visit with the Solomon family. He was glad to participate in welcoming home his niece Jackie, who had just retuned from Argentina as a missionary, and bidding farewell to nephew Matthew, who was leaving to do the same in Mexico.
