“Today I lost my Dad. No this was not unexpected but still its hard to lose a loved one. We didn’t always see eye to eye, in fact, in my eyes he was a larger then life character. He took me in when I was 7 days old with my Mom and raised me as his own. Yes he was hard and it was trying at times and I couldn’t see the outcome of it all when I was young. But seeing what I have become I am thankful for him. He taught me everything he knew. He adopted me officially when I was 16 but I was his from day one. Love comes in many forms and his was hard too see but it was there. I will miss him a great deal. Thank you Dad for everything.” -Richard Bradley
