Thank you to the Frauenshuh Cancer Center and staff, Dr. Chen, Dr. Illig, Dr. Nordberg, Dr. Baggenos and the staff at 5 West.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of Brad. Me and him worked together way back in the day at Pamida. He may have even mentioned my name at times. He enjoyed seeing me every time we crossed paths. My heart aches for you all. I didn’t know he was sick. I’d think about him at times and hadn’t seen him around. I’m really sorry! Your parents even knew me. I won’t be able to make it to the funeral, but I give my sympathy to all. Enjoy Heaven Brad!
