Mr. and Mrs. Older,

It is with much sadness that we write to you. We got to know Brad though our our two children who lifeguarded with him 15 years ago in Key West. He always had a smile on his face and we knew that when the guards went out to eat, Brad would make sure everyone behaved. After Key West, we kept up with your son through our son who remained friends with him. I know there is little

I met Brad through mutual friends and got to spend time with him on several occasions over the past year and a half. We liked to give him a hard time because he always seemed to wearing the same shirt, but he was so much fun and had something interesting to add to any conversation. He will be greatly missed.

Bob, Cindy, and Danny,

There simply are no words to convey the level of sorrow for your loss; as a parent myself now I cannot even begin to fathom what you and your family must be going through. Though we lost touch as we grew older, I will always remember Brad for his kindness, even when we were young.

I pray God bring you a comfort that only He can provide. I am deeply sorry.

My heart goes out to you both. I did not know Brad. But in knowing you two and your parents I am sure he was a great son. He obviously had a great even though short life. I wish you both the best in healing from this loss.

I first met this young man at a Boy Scout function (Order of the Arrow) Herky Reynolds and I thought that he was a future leader. He went above expectations, not only as a scout leader, but as a fine young man. I lost touch with the family when my family moved to Illinois, but when I read about the accomplishments, Herk and I were right. It's too bad we won't get a chance to see what more Brad could
