"To Maureen and family,
I had the pleasure of meeting Brad on many occasions at the Philadelphia Flyers practice rink in Voorhees, New Jersey. The team I played on used it as our home rink.
My wife and three daughters also met each of you a few years back during a summer vacation in Disneyland. We were waiting in line to take the kids on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. We enjoyed meeting you.
Brad was not only an amazing player and coach, he was an amazing person. I am sorry for the loss of your husband and for your children losing their father.
He is missed by many. His smile and his laugh sure brightened the world.
Thank you for sharing him with all of us. We keep you in our prayers.

"I only knew Coach & his family off the ice. I have never met a more genuine, gracious man. He was the kind of guy that you just wanted to be around & to be his friend was something very special. His wife is equally as gracious, down to earth, and wonderfully kind hearted. I had the pleasure of knowing them when they first moved to ATL. I built the home they moved into & from day 1 was welcomed into their home & made to feel like part of the family. They were kind enough to share tickets with ne on several occasions. I was able to share some very special times with my oldest son because of their generosity. First game Coach gave me tickets to, told me get there early & come down to the glass behind the bench. I had my son who was 6 at the time on my shoulders. We banged on the glass & Coach turned around, huge grin on his big mug, & banged back. He shouted something to one of the trainers, guy disappears down the tunnel, comes back out with a stick & puck taped to it. He gets up on the bench & hands it over to my little guy. One small example of how he made you feel important & loved. Maureen, I am so sorry, I didn't find out until tonight. You have my love & prayers. You have a very special family."
