Gus and all of Brad's family ... condolences on the passing of Brad. I was shocked to hear this was 4 months ago. I'll always remember him as a great guy to be around and an extremely hard worker at FedEx. He was just one of those guys you gravitated towards when you needed something done right.

My condolences to Brad's family. Brad was always very friendly, quick to laugh and fun to be around. I hadn't seen Brad in a while, but I will always remember the good times we had in high school and our young adult years. Rest in peace, Brad.
