Brad, I miss you. I've thought of you often over the years and went to see how you were doing in life and found this out. I'm a few years too late. I'll never know why. I think of you Every time I hear Sweet Child O' Mine. As far as I'm concerned that song will forever be yours. I pray you are at peace dear sweet friend.

Dear Family & Friends,

I had the honor of working with Brad at DBFD. His contagious smile and humor was just how we greeted each other. He made my tour at the fire department a great experience. There will now be a void in all our lives. He has earned his reward to see his family and friends on the other side. He will be sadly missed. Sholom my friend!

You were so full of fun, life, craziness! Making pterodactyl noises, air guitar to G&R, talking about guns and girls and whatever came to mind.

I love you cous, and I am going to miss you. ~Eric
