I have wonderful childhood memories of trick-or-treating with Brad. And memories
of trying hard to stay out of trouble at CCA.
The Light of God surrounds us.
The Love of God enfolds us. The Power of God protects us. The Presence of God
watches over us. Wherever we are, God is, and all is well.

Last week, we sat saying goodbye to an old friend who had 38 great
grandchildren, and out of the mouth of one of these little ones came, "Wow
this year papa gets to spend Jesus birthday, with Jesus". Nancy and Billy
Bob, we know that our Kenneth, Amy and Brad got to spend Christmas together,
with Jesus.

To Kim, It seems like yesterday when we all were at WOLC fellowshipping and
again time has slipped through our hands, but the time we had together
laughing, enjoying each others company and eating will never be forgotten. Can
hardly wait to see him again to make the Garlic mashed potatoes he so loved.
Just knowing makes me rejoice in my spirit and in my heart that we will see each
other again. Love Always Mark and Barb

Kim and Jonathan, Billy Bob and Nancy, We struggle each and every day with our
own loss,and yet we feel like we know yours as well. We know that each
relationship is different, and so no two losses are the same. Kim, it meant so
much to Teresa and a I, when you and Brad came to Brennan's visitation. I
struggle to remember who was there,and who was not, but you both always be in my
memory. I regularly ask if so and so was at visitation or the funeral, but not
both of you. You both are in my memory. Brad was an extremely significant part
of my life, and a great friend, and a member of our family, for Teresa and I.
Life really just passes us by, and we so carelessly allow those who mean so
much, to leave us without letting them know what they mean to us. It really will
always mean so much to me that Brad wanted to keep in contact until he could not
any longer. I have to admit, that I have struggled so much in my own grief that
