We are heartbroken at the loss of this kind, and wonderful guy. Brad was a brother to our children and a son to us. Over the years he was at our home almost as much as our own children as you could have found our son at his. You could ALWAYS find him with our Dean. I thank the Lord for bringing Brad into our lives and I want to thank Dawn and Buck for sharing their AMAZING son with us... He will be deeply missed.
