To Christa Boehle Bradford,
My thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss! Time will heal the pain you are feeling now, but the beautiful memories will be in your heart forever.
I used to love the car trips to Lynchburg on the weekends to pick you up when you were spending time with your dad. I was nice to hear your weekend stories about your Dad. May love and peace be with you and your family .

Simply the best daddy a girl could ask for. I thought he hung the moon and the stars and being in his arms, his hug, that was my favorite place to be. I will forever be the little girl running up to her daddy, Ich Liebe Pappi.
