Last night Brad, a very close friend of my family, lost a terrible battle with addiction.
Today, my family and friends are throwing me what was supposed to have been a surprise bridal shower. Brad’s family is insisting that the shower go on, and that we spend the day loving and sharing happy memories.
I have lost a brother.
These are the beautiful words that his mother used to break the news to everyone after we made sure the closest loved ones were told :
“My sweet, loving, beautiful boy, Bradley, lost a battle within himself last night and passed away into the peace he deserves. I will love and miss him all the days of my life.”
I will love you always brother.
Rest easy, “Bralley.”
