    Dear Connie and Jerry, i’m so sorry for your loss. Brad was a good man and a great son. It was a pleasure growing up with him and spending time on the farm during Christmas. We all had a blast digging up potatoes and working together as a family. He will be missed greatly and I hope you will have comfort during this time. God Bless You and the family.

  2. Sue Hayes says:

    Kiffany, Jerry, Connie, Sophie and Lilly,
    My sincere condolences to each of you for the loss of Brad in your life. I know he fought a courageous battle and each of you were there to support him never giving up hope. Cherish the memories of a life too short. My thoughts and prayers are with you today and always. Know I care. Love to all.

  3. Ashly Bliss says:

    I am thinking of you and praying for you and your family.

  4. Randall Huston says:

    To everyone around Brad, I knew Brad for far too little time. I think we all have that sense of loss who knew him. We joked around at work and Brad was always one of my most favorite people. He had some of the best comebacks and although we had some really raucous banter between us, it was all in jest and really made the day tolerable at times. He was the kind of guy you look foward to working with. Even in the worst moment of his darkest hour he was an inspiration to us all. His laugh, offbeat sense of humor and his ability to smile through the hardest day will be sorely missed.

  5. Tim & Debbie Williams says:

    Brad always had a smile on his face. We took many rides with Brad and we will miss him deeply. Our prayers go out to all his family and May God Bless You! Hold tight to the memories. Ride with the wind little buddy!

  6. JOHN and TRINA SZUBA says:

    Thinking of you and your family Kiffany. Brad was one of the sweetest, kindest and courteous young men we ever met.

  12. Danielle Hutcherson Owens says:

    I went to school with Brad nearly all of my educational life and there were always great jokes and smiles when he was around. I am sorry to hear of the loss and knowing him, he had to be a fighter. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family.

  13. Karen Roth Christensen says:

    You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. May your special memories bring you comfort.

  14. Marilyn Hastings says:

    Brad was such a GOOD person and did not deserve to have to battle cancer the way he did for so long. He should be here with us now enjoying life with Kiffany, playing with Sophie & holding Lilly. He is missed by so many people. I can think of 5 people who should be gone instead of Brad. Why are the people who mean so much to everyone taken away?

  15. Mandy Reno-Burkett says:

    I will forever miss you baby brother. I think of you everyday. You were the cutest baby and grew up to be a caring person. I will keep watching our show “Dukes of Hazzard” baby brother and remember when we were kids watching this with our happy meal cars.
    Love your big sis, Mandy

  17. Josh Myers says:

    Wow! Just found out about this tragedy today. April 16th 2012.

    I grew up in the ‘zoo” with Brad. We were best buds 6th thru 8th grade. I had no idea he was going through all this. My condolences to the family. Brad was such a great kid when I knew him. I didn’t have a lot of friends as a kid but Brad was a great one that I will always remember him. He stuck up for me so many times when other kids picked on me and always had my back. We rode skate boards and freestyle bikes from the time we woke up to the time we went to bed. I’ll never forget Brad’s Hot Pink GT bicycle Jerry and Connie bought him. Gone way too soon. Thanks for the memories!
