Dear Friends of the BABC, It is with heavy hearts that we advise that our dear friend and colleague Colin Brown has passed away suddenly while on holiday with his family in the Sierras. The outpouring of support and love for Colin and his family has been extraordinary. We have been in brief contact with Colin's wife Malini and have set up a special email, email@example.com, where you can share thoughts and condolences with Colin’s family, and offer your reflections on our amazing friend, colleague and mentor and the wonderful ways in which he touched our lives in so many ways.

Dear Malini, On behalf of the entire BABC community – our board, members and staff – please accept our deepest condolences to you and your family during this difficult and tragic time. It’s hard to find the words to express how much Colin has meant to the BABC: his leadership, strategic vision and fresh thinking have taken the organization to heights we never imagined. But most of all, his friendship and collegiality and willingness to share himself with all of us is something we will always treasure and never forget. When Colin made a commitment, he kept it. When Colin set a goal, he achieved it. And when Colin gave you his word, he meant it. He was truly a special individual, and although he left us unexpectedly and far, far too soon, his impact will remain indelible, and his memory will inspire us to emulate his extraordinary qualities and kindness to others.
