Not sure what to say?

Sonny was my dad's cousin but to us he was Uncle Sonny. He was a kind and gentle soul and he will be sorely missed.

Stephanie and I won't be able to be there to mourn with you and celebrate his life but we will be there with you in spirit.

Uncle Howard, my heart is sad that youre gone from us. May God please watch over you for eternity.

We have met Mr Bradley on only a few occasions, but the love he generated and shared with his family is evident. His light will continue to shine through his children and grandchildren. God bless you Mr Bradley.

We will miss Uncle Howard beyond words. We will carry and cherish all the wonderful times and memories we shared as a family. His impact on my family was enormous. We were blessed to have moved closer to the area over the past few years so that we could continue to share some more precious time together. We will deeply miss him, and his memory will live on with us forever. You are all in our hearts and prayers. We love you all very much!

His family was his sole focus and he loved and was loved by each of them

Bernice and family, much love prayers for the loss of your dad, and grandpop, will be keeping you all in my prayers, love and peace to you all.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief. An old friend from Frankford High school. We all had lots of good times

He will be greatly missed. Such a kind, loving soul.

Sorry for your loss, prayers for family. Uncle Howard was a nice man.
