When our family spoke at a recent memorial event, a beautiful mother in the audience raised her hand and said to my college age daughter, Kristen. “My son was supposed to graduate with you next month.”
Kristen asked, “Was your son Brad?”
“Yes,” Irene answered.
Kristen knew Brad. He had attended college with her and Kristen had been friends with his girlfriend. Irene asked us to speak at a memorial picnic which will be held in Brad’s memory.
