“Dear Brady: You made a strong impact on my career as a Claims Adjuster with Nationwide Insurance in McDowell county in the 70s and 80s. You were always there to help and put peoples' minds at ease. I have carried your lessons through life. I will greatly miss you. They don't make 'em like you anymore, my dear friend.
“I wish I could have met you, I have had the pleasure of knowing your grandson Joe and am sure he is a lot like you. I know you were loved dearly by your family and will be missed. My prayers and thoughts are with your family in this very trying time, but we all know your in a better place.
“Brady was a wonderful person who did so much for our community. His leadership along with other members of the Lions club are responsible for the Blue Ridge Apartments for senior citizens.
I will miss my friend Brady.
My prayers are with the family. I am sorry I was out of state and could not attend the service.
“May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
“Dear Mary Ann and family,
Bill and I loved Brady. We had a good many laughs together, especially over all the times people thought Bill was Grady and vice versa.
We will miss him and his wonderful sense of humor.
God bless you,
Connie Scott and Bill Griffith
