  1. What does this mean? What are these feelings? We’re told to say goodbye. But I never got the chance to do so. I can still see you and hear your contagious laugh. It is so hard to try and collect myself before others. To tell them that everything is OK. It is so hard to try and show them that I am fine and that there is no pain. Yet here I am thinking and wondering what to do next. You knew so many people and touched so many lives. It’s so hard to imagine what it will be like without you. What will I say when I run into someone you know? Or how will I react when I hear your condolences. I can’t. It’s not the right time. I’m not ready to let you go. It wasn’t expected. It wasn’t fair. I didn’t have any time to prepare. I don’t know how to react or what to say. Am I going to be ok.? My heart feels so heavy, my mind is such a blur, knowing that I’ll never see you again. I have to be strong because it’s what I’m to do even though I can not fathom a world without you. Being strong is all that I know how to do, even secretly, I know I’m not the same without you.

  2. Brad brought a smile to every occasion–Playing together growing up and skiing behind the VW are some of the memories. Thinking of your family and sending sympathy,

  3. I was sorry to hear of Brad passing away. Worked with him for years at Northwest Airlines in Atlanta. and he always had a joke or funny story to tell.
    he had an infectious laugh, and he was a pleasure to work with no matter the task. My condolences to his family and friends, I know he will be deeply missed.

  4. Real sorry to hear of the passing of Brad. We grew up playing as kids living across the street from one another. Classmates in school, in band together and ran around a bit together after high school. I can see Brad was a great craftsman as I am sure he learned a lot from his dad who built Brad and Lonnie a go cart with a steering wheel that was lots of fun to drive as kids. Brad was big into cars with his first car being a Volkswagen Bug that was good in snow but poor for heater and defroster in the winter.
    I am sure Brad will be missed by many

  5. Brad is going to be deeply missed by not only his family, but by so many who had the privilege to know him. He was definitely one in a million and made forever friends so easily, no matter where he went. I’m going to miss his hugs, his laugh, his sense of humor and quick wit, his mischief and joking and everything about him. I will forever cherish all of my precious memories of Brad and hold them close in my heart. I know I will think of him every time I hear a plane fly over. Until we meet again, fly high dear Brad. Love you always!

  6. We are so very sorry for your loss. I have known the Neiman family for over 60 years and we all played together when we were kids. Me and my brother Bill visited with Brad a few years ago in the Turtle Lake Park, he will be greatly missed.
