To Barb & family,

So sorry to hear of Brud&s passing. I enjoyed working with him for so many years in Junior Achievment and getting to know you Barb, and several of the ""achievers"" in the family. Brud was proud of and loved all of you. May your memories bring you peace at this difficult time. Hugs.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Brud Meyer was the sole voice of compassion and reason for the African-American employees of Eli Lilly and Company Tippecanoe Laboratories as they faced bigotry and racism in the workplace from the 1960&s. And, Brud was my mentor and my respected friend. I could not have remained employed by Lilly through the early years without the many hours of counseling that Brud afforded to me during those days. Brud also encouraged me to participate in community service- nominating me to be a member of the Board of Directors of Lafayette Home Hospital.

May God touch the hearts of his lovely wife Barbara and and of the members of their extended family through this time of grief, and may their grief be replaced, in time, with the fond memories of this most remarkable human being. I did not know Brud&s natural daughters but I remember Amy, Jeff and Blake Gowan fondly as children.

Sincerely,

Frank Brown, Jr.
