I can't express my sympathy enough to all the family, I have always called him Rad, don't think you was just going to call him to see how everyone was doing because you might get to after about 45 min.! We would laugh so hard we would be hurting and that was just on the phone! We had some fun times together just not enough, one particular time when he came to SC it was after supper up at mom and dads my sister Shirley was their I said hey cuz you want to go to the sand pit, you know him he jumped right in my truck with Shirley he kept asking what is this place somewhere to shoot pool? I said you will see so we started through the woods and came to a big sand pit with hills I never heard anyone holler and laugh so much that's just one memory, not counting on the phone calls, he was a good man and Loved his family and always provided even when he got sick, I'll always cherish the time I had with him and praying for comfort for the family in this difficult time, I just wish we were closer so we could come, love y'all Denise,Angalic and Dominique, there will always be a empty part of my heart gone . Rip cuz , see you soon.

When Gladys was on her way to the hospital to have Ron, she had a real bad craving for watermelon. My mother drove her from Weston Iowa into Council Bluffs and before they got to the hospital they stopped at Safeway Grocery in Council Bluffs so Gladys could have a slice of watermelon. She ate that on her way to the hospital. NO one will know how much it will hurt to add Rads name to our family tree. Denise, Dominique and Angelique my thoughts and prayers are with you and I hope your happy memories will carry you through these hard days ahead. Wish we could have met again. I will miss my talks with Rad about the dead people. Love you Aunt Kay
