Brad was "the boy next door" (okay, down the block) and we were always at each others house during junior high. We walked to the school bus stop together everyday! The Brad that i knew was always trying to get me to laugh! but he had a sincere side too! What a good person he was! He and his horse, Preacher! He tried to teach me how to play football. i always ran the wrong direction! I went to my first formal dance with Brad as high school freshman. I'm sending this message to his kids on Father's Day, today! Your dad was a truly wonderful man! I'm so glad to have known him. I'm also sending loving thoughts to his wife, as I lost my husband 1 year ago. My heart is with you all!
