Brad was a kind, gentle & generous 41 year old man… who recently passed away suffering a fatal stroke. Saturday we buried his remains. I believe we all honored Brad with a service and social afterwards – around 75 people attended.
Then… tonight (at home) I get a phone call from ‘David’ – a dad looking for his 40 year old son. So sad – but so commendable that (after many years) he STILL LOVES and still tries to reach him… I told him – we at the Mission are in his corner – I told him “email his pic and I’ll do whatever I can”.
