Francis Coy "Bear" Bradley
Remembering Coy as one of the good guys--so precious--always a positive force, willing to help & do the right thing. Really appreciated the words of Don Cooley as well.
Bear was the best friend I ever had. We always stood beside each other and had each others back covered regardless of the situation. He said what he meant and meant what he said. I just got back from Kentucky making sure his final wishes were finalized - he was buried high up on the mountain beside his mother and father. Rest in peace my friend.
Too soon to leave us, Bear. You were a great guy to work with and a sweet individual. You will be missed.
My dear great-uncle Butch, I know you are in heaven surrounded by your brothers and sisters who passed before you. I can see you sitting there with your legs crossed and telling a story. Your voice and the last words you said to me at Bonnie's funeral still ring in my ears, "baby girl I plan to come up this summer to visit you all." I remember staying at your house before going to Kings Island. Thank you for seeing all of the good my mom has done and for the words you said to her in December. You will be missed! Give my mamaw a huge hug and kiss from me.
When I was little I thought Uncle Butch was "rich". He had a big house and when our family visited he gave my brother and I gifts. I remember he got Joe a truck and I got a Darcy Doll. I guess we are the "rich" ones for knowing and loving him.
