To Nancy, Dan, Rikki, and Mitch,
Both Francoise and I wished we could have been with all of you to help comfort you in the loss of Bradley. We have been praying for you since that moment when Mark called us. No one on this earth has the right words to make this much easier, but we know that Bradley is with GOD right now and he is being comforted by HIM. Just remember that when you are looking up at the stars at night and thinking of all the good memories of your son, that GOD and Bradley are standing side by side looking down at you and remembering those same times. Keep GOD close and Bradley will always be close to your hearts. With all our sympathy, comfort, and Love from your Cousins Mike & Francoise.
To the Skafte family; My heart aches with yours at this time. Bradley will be with you always in your hearts and good memories.
