To all of the Bradley Family, my prayers & deepest sympathies are with you during this difficult time. I work for the Miss. Forestry Comm. & got to know Maurice because of his interest in keeping his land in productive use by planting trees. It was always such a pleasure to see him or talk with him on the phone. I loved hearing him tell "truck driving" stories. He dearly loved his family and he will be sorely missed. I know you have so many great memories of your time with him and you'll smile & think of him often. May God bless & be with you all.
