Jim and I are so sorry for your loss. I worked with Brad at the Decatur Family YMCA for several years. He was always willing to learn new things and offered to help whenever we needed it. He was a funny guy, we shared lots of laughs and always loved his stories. We are sending you and the family our thoughts and prayers.
