We did not get to have Bradley very long with us here but what little time we did get him was wonderful. Your tribute to him is wonderful. Brad was lucky to have such a wonderful family just as you were lucky to have Brad in your life. It is nice to see Bradley's House getting to were it needs to be and having it named for him to wonderful!!! God Bless!!  Tina Iddings

Dear Jim, Nancy & Chase,  This is certainly a wonderful tool to help stay connected as you continue to transition to a new chapter of your life.    Take your time, and remember when one door is closed a new one will be opened for you until we all pass through the same gate.  God Bless

to the wilson Family what a lovely choice you made to mark the resting place of bradley.  We still think of brad so often and share laughs and tears, he was such a special young man and will continue to live in all of us.  We were so blessed to be a part of his life and wish your family healing strength through prayer.  Keep us also in your prayers so that we can continue to do gods work. 

Sincerely,
Krista Smith

Dear Jim, Nancy, and Chase,

Thanks for sharing your deepfelt thoughts with all of us.   Bradley's life was truly an inspiration for many people.  I know he touched our lives and we too look at his graduation picture on our computer screen daily.  

The cross on his grave marker is the symbol you spoke about last Sunday.  All things do begin at the foot of the cross.   Bradley's life has not ended, it has only begun. 

Our heartfelt love to you all.

Thanks Jim for sharing :) I was just talking about Brad the other day and the ministry that was started in our church in honor and memory of him. They were in tears over the story how our church supports children in a 3rd world county and strong it is still going. Thanks be to God for Brad's life.

Jim, Nancy and Chase,

The loss you feel will never go away but will get easier to handly as time goes by...Bradley was and will always be a big part of your life.  God knows who to give the children to, and you proved he was right in giving Bradley to you..You adored him and took very good care of him his whole life and he truly knows that there is no one who loved him more then his family.

May God hold your hearts and let you remember the good times and know that Bradley is where god wants him to be at this time..He let you have Bradley  and now its God's turn to love Bradley in his home.

Know I love you and think of you often..You have been wonderful to my son and his family and for this I will always be greatful.

Love you,

Hi there, Jim, Nancy and Chase. What a nice surprise to receive a journal entry from you, Jim. The website obviously still serves a purpose for you and so it should remain; it is part of the healing process for you-a healing that can't be rushed in any way. We all grieve differently and this site is giving you the opportunity to continue on your grief journey. Not an easy journey, to be sure. How lonely it must be to those who don't know the Lord, especially during times such as these. The grave marker is wonderful-thanks for sharing it. Many thoughts and prayers continue to be with you.

It has been a pleasure meeting you all and getting to know you and Bradley. There's no doubt in my mind that you were the perfect family to support Bradley throughout his life. I was amazed by your great strength throughout Bradley's hospitalization. It has been an honor and a privilege to care for Bradley and to get to meet all of you. Thank you for having me be a part of his service and allowing me to see the huge impact Bradley made in this world. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Pastor Jim, Nancy and Chase,

I've been thinking about what it was like the moment that Bradley entered heaven. What kind of special reception does somebody like Bradley receive? Yesterday when I was at Bradley's House in Chiquilistagua, I looked around and saw all that is being accomplished there, knowing that Bradley's life was the inspiration for it all.

We know that this time must be full of ups and downs for you and we pray for a peace and rest for each one of you. God bless you in all you do.

Dear Jim, Nancy & Chase...Paul & I were so very touched by the entire visitation atmosphere last night. Everything was just so appropriate for the celebration of this special young mans life. I know the 3 of you had to be simply exhaused from the long, very long and stressful days leading up to Bradley's passing from his earthly home to his heavenly home, but all of you were so gracious to all the guests, regardless of how tired or exhaused you were feeling. The holy spirit was certainly present, and when we left to drive home, we felt a total feeling of peace for young Bradley, in knowing that he has touched so very many lives while on this earth, and of knowing that he will continue to touch lives for many many many years to come . What better tribute to a beautiful life than "Bradley's House of Hope". While we were unable to attend the actual funeral service today, I'm certain that it was indeed a true celebration of his life, and I hope and pray that your family will feel all the prayers sent your way for peace and loving comfort , thru our eternal Lord and savior. Love & Prayers to all. Paul & Donna Hayes - Trenton, Ohio

Dear Jim, Nancy and Chase,

I have just read of Bradley's passing and my heart goes out to you. Jim would always share with me at the BOM meetings how things were going with both boys and the family. Although you all were preparing for this day, this day still can't be easy. I pray that you feel God's love surrounding you and uplifting you, it is there. I give thanks for Bradley's life and all the gifts and grace that you all have found along the journey. My prayers go with you as you all begin a new part of the journey together in the love of Christ.
