Dad - I can't believe a year has gone by because I still can't believe you aren't here. I miss you so much and wish I could talk to you one more time. I think about you all the time, especially during football season and going to the theme parks. I know we'll see each other again, but it's hard not being able to see you now. Love you,

March 31, 2015

Hey Babe,
I hope you get this message. It has been a year since you've been gone. I have missed you so much. You are always on my mind. My heart is half empty without you. I miss our morning coffee together and planning our day ahead. It's been quite a stressful year. Elissa and I have had a house built and we are living toether in your favorite city of Orlando. I miss our talks and holding hands and kiss goodnight. I miss the sound of your voice and how you always made me laugh. It has not been easy at times me going on by myself. But I feel you with me and that helps me go on.
Love you always, Paula

I was a client of Brad's and am so sad to hear of his passing. He was a very nice man and I could tell that he had a gentle soul. My thoughts are with his family.

Paula & Elissa,
Looking at the photos brought back so many years of memories. Brad is one to be fondly remembered!
But, we won't say goodbye because that's forever. Instead, we'll say "nice to know you"... because it truly was!!
