It's been 5 years since we heard your sweet little voice. 5 years since you gave us hugs and kisses. 5 years since you called me a butthole. 5 years since we heard your beautiful laugh. 5 years since I cried so hard the whole world could feel it. 5 years since our hearts were broken. 5 years that we have wished for one more moment with you.
However, it's been 5 years since you've been pain free. 5 years since you went to be with Jesus. 5 years since you've been able to walk, run, and jump like all the other little boys and girls. As much as I miss you, I'm so happy knowing that you are happier now in heaven! Forever PEACE, love, chocolate milk, and Green Chips! We love you little buddy!!
Cheers with chocolate milk.
Looking back at today’s memories brings back all the memories I have of this little Angel! Not a day goes by that I don’t think of him...I know I don’t share a lot on here but usually Chris posts updates. In this pic Bradley was shooting his sunglasses he refused to take off for 2 weeks:) he even insisted on sleeping with them on! January is a hard month for our familial year as it is the anniversary of when Bradley became an Angel. I know he’s still in heaven playing with Ch...ristian and Ehrren-having fun! Running, playing basketball and endless Mario games...no more chemo, radiation treatments and being sick! I hope to be on here more this next year to promote ependymoma cancer in kids and raising awareness overall of all childhood cancers. I am finally ready I think to handle this! Of course, we have the Easter benefit coming up! But I want to start doing more! This weekend Bradley’s sisters are competing in gymnastics at Make A Wish in KC! I want to add Bradley’s name on the shirts they receive to honor their brother and the Make A Wish foundation for allowing us to go to FL! It was amazing! Anyways I will keep you all updated with any ideas I have! God bless and thank you for following our family over the years and for all the much needed prayers!
Me and the Mrs. Wanted to wish you all a very Happy New Year. We hope that you are rich in love and blessed with good Health. Most of this year has been very positive for us and our family. We have had our share of trials and tribulations along the past year. I have learned that I know many people care but just not enough to offer any help. On the other hand I have family and friends that will Drop what there doing to be there for me . I've made some bad choices and yet my ...wife didn't kick me out. Instead she embraced me and let me know all would be ok. I'm gonna do a better job of focusing on me so i can the best I can be. Along the last year I had to cut ties with a lot of poeple that just didn't have time for us. Now simply say thank you to my wife ,my best friend Bryan dullard, and my mom and dad. The hardest thing for me was saying goodbye to the the people I once loved, I can no longer put myself out there because there to busy to take calls or ever return them. It breaks my heart because I truly loved these people and would have done anything for. Soooo it's now more about me and the people that truly love and care about me. People that want to be a part of our life. We all do things that will help us to be better and this one is mine.
HAPPY New Year Mr. Bradley
PEACE LOVE CHOCOLATE MILK & GREEB CHIPS
Merry Christmas Bradley! We imagine you surrounded by all your favorite Mario, Sponge Bob, and all of the rest of your favorite characters. Playing Mario kart, jumping on a trampoline, and running and jumping all over the place. We love you, and we miss you lots.

Almost there! 2 more months, maybe 3 and then I'll be able to donate my hair! It's 1 of the things that still brings peace. Knowing that my hair will make a nice wig for some kids that need it. In Bradley's name, here we come Wigs for kids!
Peace, love, chocolate milk, and Green Chips ❤
Happy 10th birthday to one of the sweetest boys I've ever known!!
I apologize for not posting more recently. A lot of times I talk about strength and perseverance and moving forward. But right now I'm going to take a moment to talk about the other side. I have portrayed myself to be much stronger than I truly am. Over the last 3 almost 4 years I have been on a steady pace of self-destruction. I've done a lot of things to try and forget about the pain that I truly do have and... it clearly has not worked out for me. By putting this out there I'm doing something that I never do and that's making myself vulnerable. My heart has gradually filled up with a lot of hate since the day Bradley passed. I lost my faith in God in fact I haven't even been able to hear his name without cringing and discussed and anger. I have pushed almost all the people that care about me away. And I truly have hit rock bottom. However in spite of all this my family still loves me and they are supporting me during this time. There's two reasons I'm sharing this information 1 because I need to heal and the only way I'm going to do that it's by admitting that I need to and 2 because I know there's a lot of people that follow this page that have been through similar situations and my message is simple. Talk about your feelings allow people that care about you in don't hold it inside and let go of your hate. I am not perfect I am far from it I'm just a person whose heart was broken and I have yet to figure out how to heal from that. They say the first step in any recovery is admitting that you need to recover and that is what I've done and that is what I'm doing. Thank you for your continued support of Bradley and his memory and what he's meant to so many people. Peace Love chocolate milk and green chips fly high little buddy you are so greatly missed!!
So a little update. I have been growing my hair out for over a year now. I was excited to get it cut so I could donate it, but i have 4 more inches to go! Looks like it will be the new year thing to do. I'm so glad I have nice enough hair to be able to donate it to the brave warriors fighting cancer. It always feels good to give!

Found this gem when I was looking through Timehop. Little Bradley playing on his Nintendo DS sitting in his favorite spot on the couch. I'm sure he was watching his favorite show SpongeBob or Mario Brothers. It's been awhile since I've posted an update. I know a lot of his faithful followers still look here often to see new pictures. School started for all the other kiddos Elijah 10th grade Brittany second grade Ashley 8th grade. Bradley would have been in 4th grade this year. Hope you all had a great summer.
Peace love and chocolate milk and green chips
Only 5 more inches to go! In case anyone forgot, I'm gonna donate my hair to wigs for kids. I've been growing it out for over a year. It's gonna feel so good knowing that some young people fighting the toughest fight of ANYONE'S life, will benefit from my hair. It feels good to give!

Cleaning out the garage and I came across this gem. Elijah, Ashley, and my nephew Keith holding baby Bradley. He was just a year old in this picture. I love finding pictures I haven't seen in a long time....warms my heart.
