The last time I saw Bradley, I heard him first. Bradley’s laughter was spilling out of the windows at the house he and Marco were working at. This is how how I will always remember Bradley, laughing. My heart goes out to everyone who will miss Bradley’s laughter in their lives.

The last time my daughter, Denise Morton, and I saw Bradley was at Thanksgiving at the Bradley's ten years ago. Bradley was the light of the dinner and it seemed that all conversation was made brighter by him being there. He was so much like his mother Trish, both so outgoing and so much fun being around. My memories revolve around decades ago when Greg, Bradley, Jerry, and my daughter as kids were growing up and the times we all got together for birthdays and holidays with the rest of the families. Bradley was a people person, and even as a child I remember him for his precocious spirit and heartfelt friendliness towards all he met. Just looking at his picture, his smile will tell you everything about him.

The loss of your spirit is too much. Your laugh being gone is unfair, the love you showed and shared is now gone. All we have is memories. I’m profoundly effected by your passing but rejoice is all the love of family and friends. Sweet boy you will love on in our hearts and memories. I will love and adore you always 💕💞

Brad and I grew up together from K thru 12, in a school class that was awkwardly close, but unattached... we Drama... Branham Drama.

I remember when Brad and I were in a play at Dartmouth. We were so young then and went on to Branham High together as well. Cant remember the name of the play but we were prospectors and actually did very well. I'll never forget Brad and how he always had a smile on his face. So sad hes gone from this world so early.

RIP Brad.
