Brad Gilbert - October 10, 1962 to July 23, 2014

Our great friend Brad Gilbert lost his six month battle with Cancer on Wednesday July 23 while holding the hand of his wife Cindy.  Many of our blog readers may have met Brad over the years.  He was a college friend of Dave's since 1981, he stood next to Dave at our commitment ceremony and he and his family have visited us here in Bend several times.  We flew back to the Midwest for a quick three day visit to be there for his visitation and memorial service.

His wife Cindy and children Spenser & Delaney created a beautiful alter in his honor.  Since he was the CFO at Cadillac Coffee it was draped with coffee bean bags and filled with several photos and mementos that were important to him throughout his life.  It was surrounded with beautiful floral arrangements, his mountain bike and his golf clubs.

After the memorial service the family had a gathering at their house to celebrate & share stories of his life.
