I enjoyed visiting with Don every week at church. He always greeted me with a strong handshake and a smile. We also had one small thing in common, we liked our Crown Vics. I will miss you. See you later with Jesus.

Thank you Dad for always being there for me through thick and thin. I will always admire you for your inner strength and caring. You have made me a better man and I see many of your traits in my own children. What a gift it has been having you in my life. Thank you for leading me back to the lord when I thought I could do everything on my own. You will be truly missed but I look forward to seeing you and all the rest of family and freinds someday in heaven!

Thank you Dad for always being there for me! You have given me so much strength and never turned your back on me, even when you could easily have. You have taught me what being a man really is and in turn I hope that I have have done the same with my children. Thank you so much for bringing me back to the lord when I was going down the wrong path. You will be truly missed, but I look forward to joining you and all our family and friends one day in heaven.

Don was truly a man of honor, and a man to be admired. He was deeply committed to his country. And lived his life for his family. He loved his wife and kids tremendously. And his sarcasm has no equal, though we all try. My life was greatly influenced by Don, and I am a better man because I knew him.

My father was a hard-working man who loved his family. He has missed Mom terribly the past five years and, although I will miss him immensely, I know he is with her, my sister and, most importantly, Jesus. I loved him so much and hope to continue to make him proud the way that I live my life.

Throughout your life, you will encounter very few people who you can say will permanently affect not just you, but also the overall outcome of your life. Well, Don Bradley, my grandpa was certainly one of mine. The first impact he had in me was the fact that I was practically raised in his home, and constantly around his wonderful personality. This led me to inherit many of the characteristics of his personality, in particular his stubborn side (and anybody that knew him no doubt has encountered this side of him) and his sarcasm (another distinct marker of his). Those traits alone have led me to form my very own unique, yet quite similar, personality. But more than those aspects of my personality, he gave me my mother, the woman I admire most in my life, and no amount of thanks could ever cover that. Every parent strives to build their child up into somebody who desires to be godly, somebody with integrity, somebody who has their priorities straight in life. And there is nobody I feel that did better than my grandpa with my mother, because she is by far one of the wisest people I know, and I go to her for advice quite often. She is very much a blessing in my life, and I have him to thank. Lastly, I am his namesake, and there is no person in my family I would rather inherit a name from. It is with great honor that I take on the rest of my life carrying on his name. Thank you Grandpa for the impact you had on everyone you met. I am so happy you were, and always will be, a part of my life. See you in another life, Grandpa.
-Camden Dwelle, your namesake
