Dear Jenny and Family,

We have been friends of Gene and Vicki's for a long time and remember when you and Brad were married,had your children, and of course, heard of Brad's diagnosis. We have prayed for him and for all of you. You have all shown remarkable strength and most importantly love. The love you, family and friends gave him must have given him heaven on earth despite his pain. We will be keeping you in our thoughts as you and your family deal with this terrible loss. I loved what Zeke said - that he imagined his daddy running. Much love to all of you,

Jean and David Kelly

Jenny-you are so amazing. Those children are so incredibly blessed to have such an shining example of faith, love, care and strength.
I wish I could be there for the run this weekend. I'll be running in Brad's honor, can I register as a participant from a distance?

Dear Jenny and Children,

I just want you to know how deeply sad I am for you at this moment. You and Brad are truley inspiring. I pray that you will print your long journal of this courage battle for you children to each have a copy of much later in life. I grieve with you and the children. My husband lost his father when he was seven to a long illness. His mother saved lots of his belongings and articles from his illness and just now returned them to the boys. What a healing and refreshing time that has been. Remember to tell stories all their lives of their father they so loved. You are an amazing women. While there is such grieving now there is also great victory. I pray for you each day and will continue. I pray you will continue your blog and let us all help you through this hard time. Lynne

Words can't even begin to express the saddness in my heart for you and your family. What an incredible loss for us left behind and an incredible gain for heaven. You have been an inspiration to me over the last several months as I have kept up with your blog. You guys definitely made the most of life with no regrets. It has shown me and Jeff to slow down and enjoy all the little moments in every day life. We will continue to pray for you and your precious children. May God's peace and strength wash over you as you continue on your journey. Many blessings, Kari Harris

Jenny and family:

I am so saddened to read of Brad's passing. I've been following your blog for several months and will continue. As a fellow mom I ache for the pain you and your children will feel in the coming days as you learn to live without Brad's earthly presence. As a fellow christian I rejoice with you all that he has fought the good fight and he has WON! What a blessing to walk into the arms of God and away from the pain he has felt these past years. You are truly an amazing woman, wife and mother. Take comfort from your friends and family in the coming days. Allow them to be your help and strength, and think of the time you will be reunited together in Heaven.

I had Mr.Wims last year for my BCIS Class. It was the best class ever. He was the coolest teacher anyone can have. My prayers go out to your family.

Dear Mrs. Wims and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I just found out the news. I was one of Mr. Wims students when he was in Channelview High School. It was such an honor to have known him and been one of his students. I did not realize he was going through this but I would just like for you to know he was one of those rare teachers one finds that impacts the lives of students. He was not only a great fun teacher but for me he also served as a mentor at times when I needed advice about something. Its funny beacause I am almost done with my degree which is education and when ever I get the question asked in regards of if I had teachers who impacted my life and helped me make up my choice in my chosen career, he was always one off the first teachers to pop in my head. I always looked forward to going to class or just stopping by and saying hi to him. I remember when he told me he was going to be a dad he was so excited and thrilled. And I was so happy for him because I knew if he was such a wonderful teacher he would be an even better father. Once again Im just so shocked to know that such a wonderful person is gone but like I mentioned before grateful I was able to meet him and have him impacted my life. I wish you and your children the best of luck and your family will all be in my prayers!

Dear Jenny,
I'm so sorry for your loss. And I'm sorry that I'm so far away in Indiana and that I can't attend the funeral services. Please give my condolences to Sandra and David as well. I've never been good at knowing what to say in times like these. But my parents and I have been praying for you and your family. I know you have a strong support group and we've prayed for them too. I know there are a lot of people out there that will miss Brad and I am one of them. I'll continue to pray for all of you and the kids especially. I love you,

Wims Family,

I am deeply saddened and overcome with grief to hear of this news. Mr. Wims was my brother and my teacher in 2002. He was the type of teacher that you will just never forget! I just talked about him a few months ago when running into an old classmate! "Remember Mr. Wims and his big stick?!" We laughed and remembered those good times in class. His big stick was a bent old golf stick that he playfully threatened the class with if we were misbehaving or better yet UT fans!!! He had great words of encouragement and was EXCITED about being married and having a baby! I remember him showing up to CVHS with his child and just beaming with PRIDE! I have nothing but great memories and I know many other students from Channelview High School will as well. Some teachers just blend into the mix while others like Mr. Wims make a difference! Thank you for the blogs so that students like me are able to truly understand his journey to heaven and the journey your family has taken. I am deeply sorry for your loss. The children now have a wonderful guardian angel.

I wish you peace and comfort today as you honor your husband. I don't know your family, but have been so inspired by the faith that your family has, even through such a difficult time. You seem like such an amazing lady. From all that has been posted about your husband, I can honestly say I wish I would have had the pleasure of knowing him. My heart goes out to you, Jenny, and all of your family. Please know that I am praying for all of you.

Jenny --

Curtis and I are so saddened for the loss of Brad, even while we rejoice that his pain is gone and he is with God. Curt was so upset last night when Wes (Fikes) called with the news.

You and your children will continue to be in our prayers each and every day -- I must echo what others have written. The strength you have shown, the grace God has given you, and the compassion have been so remarkable. I know these next few days, weeks, and months will not be easy, but we are praying that God will shower you with his love, care, and peace.

Dear Jenny,
I heard of you through another blog. I want you to know that I will be praying for you! I lost my husband almost 13 years ago, and I am a living testimony of God's amazing grace and faithfulness! I have 4 children who are now grown. They all love the Lord, and are thankful for what God has done in their lives because of losing their Dad when they were young. I will pray for God's comfort for you, peace, strength for each new day, and that you will feel the loving arms of our Father around you. I will also pray for your precious children. God will be faithful!
Love to you!
Cindy Morby

Wims Family,

I'm truly saddened to hear the news about Mr. Wims. He was my teacher for a class I had at CVHS. He was such an amazing person and always knew how to make class entertaining and fun! He would also be so excited when his wife would come to visit! He would say, "my wife is coming today and she is the most beautiful woman you've ever seen and she's all mine." He was one of those teachers you will never forget and truly miss once you've moved on to the next grade also one that you take the long way to class just to say hello =)
I'm so appreciative that I got to meet him and will have him in my memories forever. My heart and prayers goes out to his family and children.
