This month’s Editor’s Pick is difficult to write. Brian Perri’s article, “Determination of Whole-body and Lens Dose Conversion Factors for Japanese Field Mice, Apodemus speciosus," appears in the May issue of Health Physics, and Brian’s smiling face graces our cover. Through this article, the reader can glimpse the potential of a promising young member of our field. Sadly, a glimpse is all we will ever get, as Brian passed away in a tragic accident last summer. Please take this opportunity to reflect on how our colleagues impact our lives. Our elders offer wisdom and experience, and our students offer enthusiasm, fresh ideas, and potential. Our like-minded friends offer moral support, and those who challenge us provide opportunities for self-examination and sharpening our thinking. Our professional lives are richer because of them. All of them are precious. Hold them close.
