Dear Susan, Galeta joins me in sending our sincere condolences to you and your family as you mourn the loss of Bradley. I have the fondest memories of working with him at the Hilliard Adult Education Center in Chicago. He was an outstanding adult educator helping so many students pass the G.E.D. Test. He was a very supportive colleague and a good friend for many years. Susan, we still have a beautiful candle you and Bradley made for us -- recalling happy memories. Regards, Ronald Clayton
