My heart truly breaks for you and the family. You know I always considered Brad as "my son" when you all lived here in Newberry. I loved him oh so much! Captain Clemson he will always be! Love to all!

Jones family, I rejoice knowing that my little buddy is home in the arms of Jesus. Brad loved the Lord, his family, The Clemson Tigers, and to laugh. He was our little brother growing up at church. Boy did he have a way with people. Not surprised that he became a teacher and gave back. I loved this guy very much and we had so many great times at camps and music workshops. He was so loving and kind.
I know he will be greatly missed but please remember it will be just a short time and we will see him again. My family will be praying for yours.

I will always remember Brad for his humor and smile. As a fellow automotive instructor I spent many summers at NADC continuing our education. He only had one set of clothes Clemson Orange. We always would laugh since I bleed Red and Black. I'm so sorry he is gone and I will pray for his wife and son that the Lord will help them to understand God needed a good Mechanic and Clemson fan to brighten up Heaven! My heart felt prays go with you and to Brad who we know he is in heaven looking down on all of us!

I have been praying for you and Aaron and the rest of his family for peace and comfort that only God can give, ever since I heard the news. I know that he will be truly missed by all that knew him. I am thankful for the time that I have known him. He was a Great Guy!
