Bradley enjoyed life to the fullest. His brother, Chris, says, "Brad would do things that most of us did not have the courage to do, but dreamed we could. Brad's nickname was "Chase" and that's what he did. He chased after life with all the energy he had, and he took all those around him for the ride."
He loved God with all his heart, and he shared his love and excitement of life with everyone he met. He loved the stage and life, and he never met a stranger. He was our ambassador, introducing us to everyone.
The last thing Brad said to his mother was, "Mom, I have a job I love! How many people can say that! I dance and get paid for it!" So now our beautiful son is dancing before the Lord. He was on loan from God and we are blessed.
