I am so sorry about your son.  I, like you, NEVER thought that I would lose my son.  The pain is unbearable.  The only hope of survival comes from those who have walked this road before me and survived.  I love the family photo and how you included your son in it.  It is the most loving gesture.  God Bless You.

Rest in Peace, young one, there are many who are mourning your memory. You are missed! The hurt never goes away, we just learn to cope.

Dear Nancy,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful son, Bradley with us.  Our daughter also went to live in Heaven in an instant in an auto accident.  I'm so sorry your's involved a drunk driver. Amy was a member of SADD and never touched alcohol or drugs in her life. 

Yes you are so right it is the pits, but we continue on this journey we never wanted to be on and continue to try and make the world a better place as these beautiful children did because they were here.  And I know without a doubt because we were blessed to be mom on earth we get to spend eternity with our very special children in God's time.

I'm so glad Brad is in your family photo - as he should be. Amy will also be included in all our photos and in everything we do as we know she is here watching over us just in a different way than before.  Thank you again for sharing your son with us.  Peace and Love

Hi Brad,

It's Christmas Day and it's just not right that you are not here.  I'm sorry that I didn't get to make your Christmas snow angel or get to watch our traditional movie.  We tried, but things just weren't going our way.  Brad, I love you so much and I miss you...my heart aches so much for you.  I just wish you could reach out and give me a hug and tell me it's going to be OK.  You are the best son I could have ever asked for and you will always be in my heart...forever and ever.  With each passing minute, we are getting closer to being together.  All My Love.  Mom

Bradleys memorial is wonderful you can feel and see the love.

Bradley looks and sounds like a great young man.

Please tell me how does a parent breathe through

the loss of a child?

Thoughts and Prayers, Kim

I am so sorry for you loss. Drinking and driving is horrible and it makes me sick that society doesn't look at it as the crime it is. Bradley's life was cut short because of someone else's negligence. My prayers are with you.

11-23-2008 9:19 AM -- By: Mom,  From: Ohio  

Brad, I can't believe it has been 6 years since the last time I hugged you.  I hope you are seeing how much I love you and miss you.  I want you to be so proud of me...just as I am proud of you.  I miss our times when you would hold my Neil Diamond tapes for ransom or threaten to throw them out the car window, so you could get a new pair of shoes or jeans.  :)

I feel so cheated as not to be able to see you at 23 years of age.  I wonder if you would be married and have children.  I am glad that you don't have to go through some of the pains of life that we have to go through here on Earth.

Joe and I will be sending balloons up to you and I'm sure Cody and Bralynn will be, as well.  Keep your loving arms around Brody.

I love you Brad...you're the best son a mother could ask for.  I am so proud of you.  Mom

What a nice young man.  I read his memorial, because I was thinking about doing something for my friend Jason who took his own life in 2005.  Your son is my baby brother's age, too young to be gone!  Especially because of someone's careless actions by drinking and driving.  Please be strong.  Remember you were blessed with is birth and having such a wonderful inheritance that a son is.  Josh Ochoa

Dear Nancy~The memorial that you've created for Brad is wonderful.  What a beautiful young man and such a tragic loss!  I can feel your longing and pain as I still have those same feelings too and it's already been 5 long years since the passing of my own son, Mike.  I noticed that it says up in the upper right-hand corner of the page, that you created Brad's memorial we site on the 21st of June----That was tne 5th anniversary of my son's death------I also noticed it's been over 5 long years for you , too.  Please know that Brad is always with you in these memories and in spirit and love too.        Claudia   (Mike's mom)

Dearest Nancy and Angel Bradley,

I just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. It touched my heart deeply that you added Brad to the family portrait, I think that is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I am sure Brad is so proud of you.

God Bless you

Thank you for visiting Whitney's page and for signing her guestbook.  As I'm sure you know, it means so much to me when someone remembers my baby.  I'm so afraid that she will eventually be forgotten by people other than her close family.

I have started sleeping better.  I hesitate taking any meds because I have to take care of Hayden, but I recently started a walking program and that seems to be helping.

Brad was a beautiful young man and I LOVE the way you added him in the family portrait.  I can just imagine how he is 'bragging' to all the angels about how you went to such great links to make sure he was included!Please keep in touch...

Thank you for the kind words about my Emily.  I too was a single parent, and we tend to not only be our children's parents but their friends too.  It makes it that much more difficult (my opinion only) should we lose them.  We're just not supposed to outlive our children...that's not the natural order of things.  I'm sorry for your loss.  There is nothing that takes that pain away.  Just know, that you are in my prayers.  What a handsome young man.  What potential will never be known.  God bless you and your family.


06-30-2008 5:03 PM -- By: Vickey O'NealWoodward (GP),  From: Illinois  

Nancy, I remember you and your Brad from our time at the GP site.  I, too, work avidly against drunk driving.  My daughter Michelle (my Belle) was taken also by a drunk driver in September, 2000.  Some days are easier to get through than others, aren't they?  My warmest thoughts are with you.  Vickey, Mom to angels David & Michelle.

I'm still wiping away tears -- I am so very sorry for your loss and the tragic circumstances.  Brad sounds like a wonderful young man who is loved so much and missed terribly....  Virtual hugs flying your way

Dear Nancy and angel Bradley,

What a tragic, tragic story of the loss of your son Brad. My heart goes out to you Nancy. I can feel your pain, as you write about how your son passed away. I am so sorry for your loss. 

I also lost a child. She died from a very rare disease called Moyamoya on June 25, 2007. My heart aches for her so much, all the time.

The people on this site, that have created memorials for their loved ones have helped me in so many ways. Just know you are not alone. I will keep you in my prayers. God bless you dear friend. Kristy's mom, Karen

What a tragic and unnecessary death of this handsome young man.

I know your heart will never completely heal - how could it? - but I pray that God comforts you and brings you peace.

Fly with the Angels, Brad!

Nancy --You\'ve created a beautiful memorial to your son Bradley.   I liked your idea of how you included Bradley in the family picture; what a handsome young man.  Unfortunately, we both have the loss of our sons in common.  Our son Michael passed away 6 mos ago, Dec 17, 2007 from depression and suicide while away at college.  I started crying tonight as I read Bradley's story.   I too know and feel your intense pain.   As hard as it is, we must try and move forward with God's help.  What drives me now is the faith and God's promise that one day He will call us to his heavenly kingdom,  we'll spot our sons' smiling faces and run toward their loving arms.   While our road is so hard now, we need to remind ourselves that Christ has renewed and perfected our sons, they are whole, happy and doing God's work.  You and your family are in my prayers.  May God continue to comfort and strengthen you and your family

God's Blessings,

What a handsome kid!!!!  I am so very sorry that you had to lose Brad.  I know how difficult it was to bury my brother.  He was my bed buddy!!!  I will never be the same. I know that the pain of losing a child is so much more difficult than that.  You are in my thoughts and prayers. 


06-26-2008 2:17 AM -- By: Jeannie,  From: California  

I wish you peace and solace through your journey of grief.  As a mother I would love nothing more than have a greater understanding as to why our courses in life are laid out as such.  My heart aches for every parent who has lost a child.  My prayers are with you, as I would also love to carry some of your pain.
