Rest well Pad - I enjoyed working with you, our conversations and your smile. Prayers for your peace and for your family & friends....a life far too short.....Glory Be. You will be missed and fondly remembered

My dear friend Padmore, it's so sad that everyone has lost you. It's really hard to believe knowing that your gone. Just wished that I could see you and hold you one last time. But I will always remember the last time when you and Abby and I playing football and how you called my mom, Mom. You'll forever be missed and loved. R.I.P Padmore until we meet again and please watch over All your friends and family which I know you will. R.I.P MY DEAR FRIEND.

The good Lord grant you a peaceful rest from your labor. Journey on, brother.... Till we me again at Jesus' feet

Padmore, it is sad you had to go this early and in this heartbreaking manner. We love and cherish you. May your soul rest in peace!

You were my first mentor in the US Navy. I learned so much from you in such a short time onboard the ship. Our brotherhood wasn't severed when you transferred and still isn't brother. Love you bro.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
