For nearly thirty years, we stayed in touch. Here. There. Everywhere. He placed himself in my heart a long time ago. He will be missed. Very much. Everyday.
His poetry. His love of books and film. Oh.. and let's not forget the music.. The silly songs we wrote together. Over the phone.
The compassion and generosity of this one human soul will forever be missed.
"No life is more important than another. And nothing has been without purpose. Nothing.
What if we are all part of a great pattern that we may someday understand? And one day, when we have done what we alone are capable of doing, we get to rise up and reunite with those we have loved the most, forever embraced. What if we get to become ...stars..."

He was my friend. My heart is with your family.

Larry, Carolyn, and Eric - It has been a few years, but I have very fond memories of all of you intertwined with my loving memories of Brad. One thing I could always see in Brad was his love for each of you. Whether it was a visit from his big brother, Eric; or a holiday meal with Larry and Carolyn - I could see how much you all meant to him. He was proud to be your son, and brother; and have you for his family.
He was like a brother to me - we became such tight friends during our formative years of young adulthood - we became family forever. We had some damn great times - the kind of times I will remember forever. Forever. And, Brad will live forever in my heart. Thank you for unfolding your life in such a way that brought Brad into mine.

I loved this man like a brother. We met each other in our late teens and immediately started forging what was to become a deep friendship. He was one of my true confidants, and you only get a handful of those in your life. Someone you could shamelessly share anything with and receive compassion, understanding, insight and maybe even advice. I have countless beautiful memories of his time here on Earth with us, like the time we ran into each other unexpectedly in the airport in Salt Lake, while my family was there to ski, and his to visit his brother. Instant elation, just like every time we would see each other. The antics that we would share were infinite, you see, we were both court jesters, cut from the same fabric, always doing anything and everything in the name of entertainment, fun and enjoyment. Brad and I each pushed each other in life to be the best men we could be and I am going to so terribly miss him.
Sincerely, Noah Burgess

Dear Carolyn and Larry,

Please accept our deepest sympathy at this time of unspeakable grief. I met Bradley once at UNCG. His smile lit up his face and the corner of the room where we talked. I recall thinking what a lovely person he was. Love, Cheryl

My deepest condolences for the family. I was a 1991 Asheboro High School graduate and knew Brad as a classmate. Such a kind and full-of-life soul. May you fly high, sweet friend and we all shall meet again soon by the beautiful river!

I am so sorry to hear of Brad's passing. We bumped into each other about a year ago. I had recently relocated back to the USA after living overseas for 12 years. We discussed getting together and regrettably we couldn't make it happen due to our schedules. My wife was new to the USA and we have 2 small boys. I really regret we didn't have the chance to properly reconnect.

Brad was such a genuine person. He always had a smile on his face. I learned today that we were both born on the same day, 1 year apart. He was a year older. My deepest condolences to your family. You are in my prayers.

Carolyn & Larry, my most heartfelt condolences on this tragic news. Just spoke with Brad last Tuesday. I believed our irregular calls were helping him cope. A day will not go by without thinking of his smile and laugh, and our shenanigans
Love, Chris and family
