To the Crawford Family,
We lost another great family member. The heavenly family reunion is growing and I trust they are having fun reuniting. Uncle Brad was a wonderful man. I greatly admire his consistent demeanor that was foundationally built on loving and caring. I recall some fabulous youthful days in Markle at what seemed to be the coolest house in town. Spending time swimming and playing with some special cousins helped build the bond with Uncle Brad and his entire family. We shared a love of sports and while that helped create a linkage, it was my respect for the man that made me a proud nephew. Faith was at his core and through hard work and commitment, he impacted lives, including mine. Uncle Brad, thank you caring and thank you for sharing. You have built a great family legacy. You have finished your work. Rest in peace my friend.
Condolences to Kathy, Tom, David and Doug and your families.
Love, the Schneider family.

To Your family our prayers and Love are with you all. I remember when I was a little kid and Brad and your Mom would come to our house to play cards with my parents,but first we would get him to play a game with us and he always made up short fun games . That is something I will always remember.
How much fun he was.
