I just can’t express the sorrow we feel for your loss Anne, John and the rest of your loved ones. We’ll always remember the good times we enjoyed together…in Hawaii, where we met, the time we spent together in Cabot and the short few hours we spent together in Vancouver. Always remember, you have friends here in Canada. Call, or text me anytime you want

Brad was always invincible to me. His sense of adventure always amazed me and we will cherish the memories skiing in Vermont with the family, our Thanksgiving family dinners, the Fourth of July gatherings in New Hampshire, camping out in your back yard and many more memories that were made special by Brad. We will miss him and never forget him. He is partying in Heaven now with Bj, Olga, the Smith’s and the Hutchins and that makes us smile. Our deepest sympathies to Ann, John and Sharon-we love you guys!
