Dear Mary,I only just heard of Brad's passing and it shocked and saddened me. I had the privilege of working with him and getting to know him through church service. He was a kind and gentle man who will always be in my heart forever. Mary I send my condolences to you and your family knowing that he is with God and watching over all of us is comforting at this time of sorrow and sadness. Will sorely miss him .

On behalf of the members of the Medicine Hat Sunrise Rotary club I express our sympathy to the family. We had a moment of silence to honour Brad at our meeting this morning and I'm sure the members were remembering good memories of Brad as our Sargent-at-Arms. With sympathy, Keith Walker, President
