What a tragic chain of events. A young man in his prime beaten to death. It saddens me so to hear of the death of this young individual. I remember Bobby Bradbury from the days when he played baseball with my daughter......a sweet young boy with a lifetime ahead of him. I can't make sense of it and I don't understand it.....but I know this....he's in good hands now as he embarks on an entirely new journey. My prayers are with the family left behind to suffer their loss. Remember always that he is with you.

Bobby is my cousin. He will be missed forever. I love you Bobby and you will not be forgotten. Just so everyone knows he was an organ donor and saved 3 lives with his organs. He always was looking to help someone.
