To Berta and my special little friend Becca and Beccas mother, Gina. I send my deepest sympathy for the loss of your husband/father and Papa, Brad. My heart is heavy for all of you. From what little time I knew Brad, my neighbor, he was such a friendly man. He was the first neighbor I talked to when moving in my home. "There's and easier way of removing snow from your driveway". As I turned to look at where the voice was coming from, he says: I'd help you, but I'm drinking a beer right now". Made me laugh. Right away I knew we'd be good neighbors. He would watch over my house when I was gone and to many times to remember how often I'd leave with the garage door up, he'd let me know!
To Becca, remember to pray for God's healing of your heart. Papa loved you❤️. Keep his memory close to your heart. Remember all the fun times he had with you. Papa is better now, with no more pain. If you ever need to talk, I'll be here for you! I promise. To the rest of Brad's family and friends: I pray that God gives you some comfort and healing durring this difficult time.
