I can't believe it's been 10 years...

I know posts from a lot of Brad's friends have been few and far between on here, but I assure you not a day goes by that we don't all think about him. We even pay tribute to him at my work: http://custom.buttonmakers.net/Memorial-Buttons-3-inch--Basic-Black_p_13... Brad made such an impact on me and my friends that I don't think I could forget him even if I tried. Unfortunately I don't have anything funny to share this time around. Something Chad said on FB really resonated with me. It's when I think about all the events of the past 10 years, the absence of Brad's perspective/wit/insight, to me, is one of the most tragic.

found pictures of Brad

unfortunately there are only two, but I'm hoping to dig up more.  A friend randomly sent this to me today and said, "isn't that your friend Brad?"

I've been thinking about Brad a lot lately.  I've never stopped, but lately he just seems to be popping up more and more.  Something funny will happen and I will think, "oh man, Brad would've loved that."  The other night I took the long way home (the long way home passes right by his old apt)  Just as I was about to pass it I got stopped at a railroad crossing.  I sat there for a good 10 mins, just staring at his old apt.  I thought about all the times I would pick up him up or drop him off.  I just thought about dumb stuff like how many times brad watched this same train go by.  I miss Brad.
