I only got to meet brad once but wen I did he was such a nice guy, my cousins kellie & shawn lve him a lot he's a really good guy my thoughts & prayers are with my family today!
We are all blessed to have had the opportunity to know Brad. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I wish to offer my condolences to the family during this difficult time. May you be comforted by the promise of the resurrection and the end to sickness and death forever. God makes this wonderful promise to us at Revelation 21:4 where it reads, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I hope this message brings you some solace.
Brad was one of the sweetest guys I have ever had the pleasure of working with---he will be truely missed--
My deepest sympathy to Judy, Matt, Craig & family.
Brad will be sadly missed by his Xcel Energy Family. I have had the privilage to work with Brad since 1995 in the waerhouse operations at Maple Grove. Brad was a caring individual and would go out of his way to help anyone and everyone. We could always count on Brad, he took his employment seriously and always did the best job that he could even when he was losing the battle with ALS. I will miss Brad's smiling face.
To Brad - God Bless you & Rest in Peace, you will be missed by everyone.
To Judy and Matt and Family and Friends - I am sorry for the loss of my dear brother Brad. He was a good brother, a good father, and a good man. He was an easy going soul and I will miss all of the comfortable, easy times we shared.
To Brad - You were a great brother - I will carry your memory forever and I will miss you always.
To my husband, Brad I love, I will always love you! You saved me from a life of destruction! You will always be in my heart! I gave you Matt, and he was the light of your life! We love you so much!
Carrie, Cindy, Craig and Derrek,
SO sorry for your loss. Great memories of playing games in the neighborhood!!!
Judy and Family: It was always wonderful to see Brad at the store every day, we always had great talks. I am so sorry for you.Love Cathy Carlisle
Good guy, Always a smile, when I stop over to pick up Judy-Even when He didn't want her to go
Brad, We did not know you but in these last few years. You always had a smile and words of wisdom or wit. You loved watching the little young ones as they experienced the venture of curiosity in trying something new having no idea of results.
Know that you touched the lives and hearts of many here on earth. You now are at peace with the world and resting in God's arms. Watch over all of us as we try allow our own hearts to mend.
"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit."
Psalm 34:18 (NLT)
Brad you were a second father to me and such a wonderful person. I am going to miss you so much. I know you are surrounded by your Dad and Sadie and the love of God and are at peace now so that brings some comfort. We'll watch over Matt and my mom, don't you worry about that.
