RPD Happy Thanksgiving November 27, 2008

When I visit this website, I immediately make sure the volume is muted so I don't hear the song, then I make sure the page is scrolled all the way to the bottom so I don't see your pictures. It's too hard to hear, too hard to look. Know that you are missed by many. This Thanksgiving I am thankful for many more things than usual, most all of, having met you. God bless you. RIP Brother.

RPD Friend I said a prayer for you today November 26, 2008

I said a prayer for you today

and know God must have heard

I felt the answer in my heart

although he spoke no word.

I didn't ask for wealth or fame,

I knew you wouldn't mind.

I asked him to send treasures

of a far more lasting kind.

I asked that he'd be near you

at the start of each new day,

to grant you health and blessings

and friends to share the way.

I asked for happiness for you,

in all things great and small,

but it was for his loving care

I prayed for most of all.

BFF Jamie he loves you November 24, 2008

Jamie you know who this is and I know Brad does too. He is looking down here on your whole family and he truly is an angel-he will never leave any of you. Oh my gosh if only we knew Gods plan! I guess that is why we are just mortals. Brad you are so missed and your beautiful smile will live on forever here on earth in all our minds, memories, and hearts.



Marcy Johnson OPD Mom November 20, 2008

Dearest Susan, I don't know you, and I didn't know Brad, but I live in Richmond and my only son is an Oakland Police officer and SWAT team member. He and his girlfriend attended Brad's funeral. The funeral notice went inside his dress blues hat along with 10 others he's sadly collected since his 6 1/2 yrs with Oakland. I visit Brad's website a couple times a week. Your beautiful letters to your husband ALWAYS make me cry. Your last posting talked about the support you and your family gets from the RPD. When my son finished the academy, I nervously told his RTO how scared I was, now that it was real. He put his arm around me and said "Don't worry, Mom, he's family now." The RPD will always be your family, and ALL the "families of blue" are with you in support.

The ladybug you spoke of was most assuredly Brad. When my dad died, my mom and brother scattered his ashes in the small northern Minnesota lake of his childhood. My brother decided to cast a fishing line in for my dad, and the instant the ashes hit the water, a fish hit my brother's line. We all said "Thanks Pepa, for showing us you're still here!!!

As an RN, I've seen life and death on a daily basis, and I know the spirit lives on, and will present itself to you in many little signs (like the ladybug). Stay open to Brad's spirit. I feverently hope that someday you can put your ear to the chest of Brad's heart recipient and know that he truly lives on. Stay strong, and know you and your girls are thought about and cared about, even by people who don't know you personally. Sincerely, Marcy Johnson

RPD Wife For Susan November 18, 2008



Although some time has passed, Brad has not slipped our minds for even a day.  I was watching my soap opera yesterday, (I know, how sad)  and this poem was recited.  I cried thinking of Brad and your family and wanted to share it with you.  For maybe a moment, you will feel comforted.



Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.

Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
Let my name be the household word it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was;
there is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of your mind
because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near just around the corner...
All is well. Nothing is past, nothing is lost.

One brief moment and all will be as it was before,
only better, infinitely happier
and forever we will be one together.  - Henry Scott Holland


Just know that we think of you always and will never forget the wonderful person Brad was.

Mandy Bradford Old friend November 17, 2008
     I know we don't know each other, but I think of you everyday.  Hoping and praying that your healing is getting easier as the days pass.  I can see what a wonderful wife you were to Brad. He was blessed to have you by his side.  I admire all that you have done for your husband.  I was not able to attend the memorial, but I heard you did a marvelous job, and the pictures I received from a friend were so breath taking.
   When someone is taken from this world so quickly no one knows what to do, how to cope, how to continue.... but you have done an extremely wonderful job in raising your daughters and trying your best to maintain your sanity during this horrific time in your life.  I read your post about the lady bug, and it sent chills down my spine.  I can see from the several pictures you all shared that Bradley was so in love with you and your daughters.  I am sure he is in everything that you touch, see and feel. 
   I never got to thank you for your kindness during the beginning of your nightmare.  Your words and sweet voice helped me in feeling some peace with the message I so badly wanted to convey, but couldn't.  There are no words I can think of, but you are amazing.  I know your support team is huge, but I will always be a friend to you and your daughters.  Brad helped me in discovering who I am today, and like the words I wrote to him, I owe him my life. 
   I have two daughters almost the exact ages of yours, and I could not bear to think of the pain I would have to wake up to every morning.  You are a solider, a true inspiration and your daughters will grow up thanking you for all that you have done for them.  My thoughts and prayers are with you everyday that passes and will continue forever.
 With love,
 Mandy Bradford
RPD friend For Susan November 17, 2008

Susan, I just wanted you to know that I still think of you and your daughters every night. As I lay in bed, I ask God to make your days alittle bit easier as time goes by. I came across this poem today, I would like to share with you...


And if I should go before you,

Know that part of me still remains...

You will not see me, yet I will be there walking beside you.

You will not touch me, yet I will live in your heart and memories always.

Have faith that we will one day walk hand in hand in eternity.

Until then, live your life for life is good...And know that I am with you.

Troy Froewiss Police Officer & Old Family Friend November 14, 2008

To Brad and his entire family; I am sorry this has been put off for so long, I have not been able to find the words. I was good friends with your brother and you were good friends with my brother. I read the Officer down reports every month and always feel sorrow but this time its different. I hoped to make it my whole career without actually knowing one of my downed brothers.


I think of you and your family often even before the your passing. Every memory I have of you consist of your infectious smile (not to mention your dad cheering LOUDLY for one of us.) Myself and my parteners are keeping you in our thoughts.


To your wife, daughters and family: I can't imagine how you feel but keep his memory alive and take care of each other.


Rest in peace Brad, you will be missed.


Troy Froewiss, Moses Lake WA.

Anon "Jamies friend" November 6, 2008
Years ago I lost a"brother". He wasnt my brother by my parents but by my aunt and uncle that I came to live with when I was a teen and he was still in elementary school. His name is Danny - and he was the kid - person - that had the personality - the smile - the what!- that lit up everybodies life! We buried him and sent him on to His Resting Place when he was only 20 because he was taken by the Lord in a car accident that NEVER happens in Fresno CA. Late at night - nobody on the country road and he was T-boned by a car that didn"t see him because usually there is nobody on those 4-way stops on those country roads late at night. He was a newleywed!- married just 8 months prior and  didn't have children to carry on his name or legacy. Brad your girls will do that for you - Please look for Danny up there and be his friend
