    I am sorry to hear about Brad, I only met him when he came to my place to help cut up the trees. He was such a big help and he really seemed to enjoy himself. Marvin kept me updated on his condition.

    My prayers are with all of his family!

    I know how much Brad loved hymnody and poetry. This Easter hymn came to mind when thinking of Brad: “The Strife is O’er, the Battle is Won.

    Many good memories of Brad and Joan coming in to visit when doing their banking. He always had a smile for us when coming in. Thoughts and prayers Brian for you and your family with the loss of Brad.
