"hi babes...i was going threw the other side of our closet and i found more pics that were all organized packed away in the mini photo albums."thanks 2 you" i probablly would have never found half the stuff i find if it wasnt 4 u. u were always so organized with everything. i also have negatives with pics of us on them i have 2 get developed & i will put on as soon as i get them i love u!!"
"Brad, I know u r watrching us as u r hand in hand with God protecting us.

"I miss my friend god bless you and your families I will never forget you my friend RIP LOVE BRIAN."
"Hay brad I would like to thank you for all the good times we had.not one day goes by I don't think about you. I still can't believe your not around I miss the phone calls is ed around lol. Or you just stopping over to talk about the old times. Ya we had some crazy times like knocking on doors and running prank phone calls all hours of night and the number one staying up doing madlibs."
"continue - You weren't just my best friend's dad. You were my family to me & i'll always miss you. Rest In Peace <3"
"cont. - you were such a good person with a heart of a four year old, I still can't get over that you were gone. It feels like yesterday when I would go over Sam's (which is all the time haha) and I walk in & see you aggervating Sam on purpose just to see how mad she got, it was the funniest thing to see."
"hey brad, i was in history the other day & i saw three board games of risk. I laughed to myself and thought of the time me.you.my bffl, sam & alexa stayed up all night playing that with you. I remember how happy you were to win that game. Everytime i go to your house & i see that game it makes me smile. I do miss you brad & so does everyone else."
"then u would say "oh my god, that looks hillarious, i cant wait 2 c that" about the 3 stooges.. but i guess all can do is think, i really hav no choice :( i love you so much...and miss u like crazy..R.I.P my babes..i love u always & 4 ever xoxo mwah.."
"i guess the "ifs" wat ifs" "whys" & all the other bull shit questions should stop...i will b watching something or even b somewhere & i think in my head u saying something on wat we saw..like battleship and the 3 stooges will b in the movies..and i think wat u would say " oh check that out, that looks pretty cool, i wonder wen that will b out on dvd" thats wat u would say about battleship"
"hi babes.. well sam is off 2 the U.S finals..i feel like we all should b getting ready 2 go but then reality kicks in..i remember how excited u were when sam & her team made it 2 finals..we started making plans 4 it, but i no u r so proud of her & will b there while she is cheering.Brad, this is so hard..all i keeping asking is why?? & i try 2 give up on that question bcuz only god knows Y"
"Remember that time when? YES i do and it was a blast!!! the times weve had... I really wish i could bring back the hands of time i really do, but their is one thing i can do and that is remeness of these great memories bud your like a bundle of dynomite ready to explode at anytime lol you always had ways to make things happen evan at the worst of times! you have a heart of gold 1 love!"
"Brad....... it just doesnt seem to be true the fact that your in heaven smiling down, your a really great man!!! you had the abilities to make someone go from the worst mood to a decent one in the blink of an eye and you have done this for me first hand. when we speak of you its always something to put a smile on your face. God we had some good times and i dont regret any! luv ya kid!!"
"And isabella will mention u wen she sees me looking threw all the pics or your stuff in our room..she says u r flying in heaven. i no u r smiling at everything they r doing and r with them all the time and thats what u wanted. me and the kids love u and miss u very much mwah xoxo i love you babes xoxo"
"just in case it was u making him laugh in his dream....i wasnt sure...but didnt want 2 interupt it incase it was u.Sam has pics of u and her above her bed and the 1 of all 3 of us we took in virginia beach in the booth. Alexa has everything u gave her hung on her wall or on her bed. Cowie is on the top of her stuffed animals. she was so happy when u surprised her with cowie,"
"So many people hav told me how u used 2 talk about the kids all the time either braggin about them or showing pictures of them. All we wanted 2 do is what we had 2 do 2 b a family. And every thursday u would prove that by doing what u had 2 do. The other morning chase was laughing in his sleep..i let him sleep a few more minutes b 4 i woke him 4 school"
"but by the end of that good or bad situation we found a way 2 still work it out and b with eachother. We always had the special love. hope and faith and thats what kept us together, and knowing that helps me cope with u being gone. But what really helps me is our children. They keep me hopping lol...all 4 def take after u babes lol...it hurts me 2 no that they will grow up with out u."
"goodmorning babes...well 2day is 1 month of your passing and it is very hard 2 believe still........... now, i dont no what its like 2 lose a child.a father, a brother, a grandson, nephew or even a cousin; but i do no what its like 2 lose a person who u were so in love with, and this is where i have been speaking 4 myself....we hav been threw so much 2gether whether it was good or bad..."
"IN LOVING MEMORY OF MY BRAD

I loved being able to call you when ever and telling you something no matter what it was. You were such a wonderful and loving person. I never knew i could miss someone so much in my life but i do and it hurts so much."
"appointments. I wish i could go back in time and tell you how much i love you and how wonderful you are and so proud i was of you. Unfortunately i was very stubborn (which i got from you lol) soo i would stay mad at u for a while. You used to tell me that you felt like you were a bother to me because i was always helping you but you werent i loved when i got to do something for you because"
"Hello Brad i dont really know what to say on here....i have a lot of memories with you but i wish i had more. Although we sometimes didnt see eye to eye and we fought sometimes you were the best brother in the world. I used to lay awake at night thinking about you and what you were doing because you had such a adventurous crazy life. i miss our long drives we took to your doctors"
"You will be missed"
"Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the day-time, when they're supposed to be sleeping.
They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets and make waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes.
And when they sing wind- songs, they whisper to us, “Don't miss me too much. The view is nice and I'm doing just fine.”"
"When somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel, and flies up to tell God to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to the world, and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry.
People disappear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to bed, wake up grass, and spin the earth in dizzy circles."
"always hav the time 4 that...i love you babes xoxo"
"ourselves feel better lol but i no u went to heaven knowing i loved you very much.and of course u new the kids loved u so much. i hav alot of memories of us and of course a whole bunch of pictures...i just wnt u 2 no i will always hav time 2 put more pictures on wen i find more and i will always hav time 2 lite a candle 4 u...wheather its just an "i love you" or "i Miss u" anything, i will"

"brad, the last time i was fortunate enough to spend time with you, all you could talk about was your family and how much you missed them and u were so sad. It broke my heart to see you like that.

"Brad even though u got on my every last nerve most of the time we did have our good times also! Malissa and the kids love u so much and I no u loved them also.

"There are many many great stories I could tell about Brad. He was one of my very best friends. I can't wait untill my son gets older and I can tell him about all the crazy things uncle brad and me have done. Miss you bro and i'll never forget you! you will live on in our memories and hearts forever."

We had hilarious memories. & all i have to say is thank you so much for farting in."
"Brad, I'll never forget the last time u called me. We stayed on the phone for hours talking about Mel and the kids.You told me that all you wanted was to be loved and be with Mel & the kids because u knew they loved u. They loved u so much. Brad you had a big heart and you gave it all to my daughter & my grandchildren.For that I'm forever grateful. Stay watching over them as their angle."

"Bradlee, you have been in my life since i was seven and basically saw sam & i grow up together. It feels strange to know that you are gone. You were such a good guy with a great sense of humor. I know you are not here but i know you are looking down on your family with a huge smile on your face. I miss you Brad, Rest Easy <3
"my heart drops to my stomach and my throat gets all closed up.you told me don't hold anything but thats all I've been doing. you NEVER had a dull moment EVER and everyone can agree so i can't wait until the day i meet you again and you can tell me another lonnnng story haha your always in my heart and i can't wait til the service love you dad aka Bradlee.hahah love youu more then anything!"
"fact that your gone. and your never coming back. and it stinks because I'm going to have to live to the day til a day a life without a dad. no mater how many times someone tells you your not you were my dad i died some of my hair pink lol. you were crazy funny and the best dad in the world. i haven't been looking through your pictures because it makes me sick when i do though i feel like"
"Brad, I didn't know you personally, but I know Sam, the kids, and Malissa. They loved you dearly and are going to miss you so much. I could not possibly put myself in their shoes, but you'll be looking down on them, protecting them. Forever in their hearts, and family. Rest Easy. <3"
"so for now all I have is our memories to hold on to until I see you again.
I love you Brad more than you will ever know. I just hope that each day gets better but I can't imagine that happening, there is nothing I ever thought could kill me inside but Ive found out thats not true losing you has destroyed me. I love you my son. You will always be my baby"
"My sweet child. Brad I love you and miss you so much you have no idea. I feel like my chest has had a whole ripped right through it and my heart has been ripped out. I wish I could take back that night and had made you stay home with me, but you wouldn't listen so now I am left trying to function without you. I just want to go back in time and hold you in my arms and make everything better"
"i love u brad, i always have & i always will. i miss u so much it feels like my heart is going 2 explode out my chest i no your in a better place rite now & its something i am dealing with evryday. u hav the key 2 my heart & u r the only 1 who will evr hav it & i promise u that. remember our "promises" we made 2gether & our "only u" we said 2 eachother me & u 4evr & only u i promise babes"
