A few months ago I was blessed to be apart of the few people that went on a hiking adventure with Brad and Dottie. Brad had a backpack he was wearing and I would ask him every time we would stop and take a rest break to let me tote the backpack and for the first hour he would always say " no I got it bud". Well wasn't long after Curly B said hey Jerry I think I'll let you carry this bag the rest of the way...We finally made it to the car as i gave him back the back pack he looked around to make sure no one was listening and quietly said you know I wanted so bad for you to carry it but I didn't want everyone to think I was a sissy!! Lol we laughed and laughed ..until our next hike Curly B I'll be missing you!!! You are my role model and the perfect mold of a man I would love to be. By the way... I never told Brad it was a struggle for me and that back pack and he had it longer than I did...lol but I'd carry anything in this world for that man!

Dottie, Meggan, & family,
Our hearts go out to y’all for the loss you’re feeling at Brad’s home going. I’m pretty sure if you look up the word “kindness” in the dictionary it will say: “Brad McCallum “ for a definition.
We love y’all and are praying for you,
John & Bunny
