I'm so sorry to hear of this loss for the family. Mr. Conrad was a good friend of my Mother..Shirley Gibson who worked at the Budweiser plant in florence for 25 yrs. I met him thru her and he was a great man to meet. Full of inspiration and a joy to talk with. Always happy and a big smile on his face. He also sold me numerous cars as well. Such a great person all the way around. I lost my Mama in 2009 and I understand your grief. Please know you all are in my prayers now and as you move forward through these next days. God bless your entire family and friends. Sending condolences, Cynthia L. Bredemeier

Dear Conrad you will be forever missed. Kip and I were always happy when you came to the beach. You always told us stories about your family--- you were so proud of all the children, in laws and grandchildren. It was always an extra treat when you left a surprise on our porch. I know without a shadow of a doubt you are in heaven looking over your family and friends. To Patsy, our condolences- you have all your family n friends to help you. To all the children- my heart bleeds for your loss-for no one can take the place of our Daddy. Peace be with all of you. Love Linda and Kip.
