  3. Rest Easy baby girl and fly high. The world lost A wonderful person when we lost you. You may be gone, but you never be forgotten.

  4. Kim, Angela just told me about the loss of your grand daughter. Know that your heart is broken and time will ease your pain. Put your faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, He will show you love and mercy. We are taught that Jesus has a plan for each of us and only He knows what that is. Remember when Jesus told his disciples: Where I go you cannot come, I go to prepare a place for you. For there’s many rooms in my Father’s house. I’m not one that can quote verses from the Bible, hope that you remember the verses I’m referring to. Don’t know if you are practicing your faith or not but that doesn’t matter, all you have to do is ask our Lord and Savior to help you during this difficult time that you are dealing with. Also ask our Lord and Savior to forgive of any sins Lydia may have on her soul. You know that I’m only a phone call away if you need an ear to listen, a shoulder to lean on, a place to cry or anything else you might need I’m here. Praying for the repose soul Lydia Bradford and for her family.

  5. We are praying for Kim, Marcy, and all of Lydia's family. We love you, Debbie and Tim Steele, Katherine, Josh, Micah and Liam; Hannah and Cody, Abbey and Brent, Josh and Bekah.

    John 8:12 "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

  6. He was a great friend, he was my best friend. Most people didn't like him because he made bad decisions and hung out with the wrong people. But I liked him, I saw a side of him that no one talked about, he was caring, he cried and he laughed. He was just like us, he didn't deserve to go yet
