My dear long time friends. My heart breaks for all of you in the passing of "Brad". I remember him playing on the basketball team for the then coach Jack Reeder. I may have been gone from Robinson. Il. for quite sometime but will always remember the Siler family - all of you!!!! God bless you in this time of need and know that Heaven will be welcoming him with open arms. Very hard to write this without shedding some tears - Brads father Jo sold us many cars and will always remember him and know that he will be so happy to see Brad again. Donna, you were always a special person and friend to me and my daughter Jill Parkhurst!!!! Jack I remember you with fond memories also and know that Brad meant a lot to you as you meant a lot to him. God bless you and continue to comfort Donna and family as you always have. With sincere sympathy God Bless and in time and with Gods help you find peace in Brads passing. I remain Sincerely, Eleanor Reeder

I have very fond memories of each one of you, particularly at the city pool. I even remember being there the day Donna went to the hospital to give birth to Sherry. Your family was a model for all of us. By far though, my most tender and fond memory is of my kindergarten crush on Brad. He was a beautiful, little golden Adonis. Rest now, sweet Prince and live forever beyond the gates of heaven.

Dear Brian and family: We are very sad and very sorry about Brad. I imagine that Scott isn't taking it well(our brother). Jill and I didn't know Brad that well but we are still upset all the same and shocked. I don't know what it's like to lose a sibling but my sister Marla knows what your mom and you all are feeling. Marla lost her son in 1985.You definitely all are in our thoughts and prayers..xoxoxo
