"Thank you for being a great friend all through your life from elementary school to now and plus a combat Buddy during the Gulf War. Enjoyed every moment with you. Every motorcycle ride, party, hanging out, and just being your brother. Will miss you. God Speed Brad. Enjoy your rest next to Dad and keep each other company."
"Jessie and Family,
I hope you all find comforter in the happy memories. The things that made Brad smile. Maybe it's was that fish story, the big one that got away. Or his favorite meal.
