Sorry for your loss to all the Bradley family. I remember working with Vernie at the Rehab Center. She was always
so sweet to everyone. The video was excellent.

Dear Galen, my sympathy to you and your family. I could see your pain when we spoke of your mom and that she didn't recognize you anymore. I know how that feels. She is at peace now, and she will still be in your heart as you remember her.

I wish you and your family peace.
