I vowed I'd never step foot back in this place but I had to when I was told about Brad. I needed somewhere to convey my thoughts.
This has killed me and hits way too close to home. I've had major issues in my life and he was one of the guys here who was there to listen and helped me at my lowest ebb many years ago. He'll never know how much that meant. We were not close and I won't pretend we were, but for that conversation, he was like a brother to me. Through his own problems, he managed to be there and make sense and rationalize my own thoughts. He helped save me from myself and stop doing what I was doing. Honestly, I'm not sure what would have happened if not for what he told me over the course of those two days.
Thankyou Brad. Sleep well my friend. You're finally at peace. My only regret is I could not be there for you in your time of need like you were for me. God bless you.
