Goodbye for Now

On July 9th I lost another brother. He is my third brother to leave this life early. Bradley Owen Jensen was two years older than me.

I am so blessed to have the gospel knowledge in my life. I think that I take this knowledge for granted. It is engrained in my soul and in my childrens'. It is only when you come across others who don't have this knowledge that you realize how blessed you are.

Scott died 22 years ago and Brian passed away two years ago. I am happy to know that my three brothers are there together working out their salvation. I am glad to have known Brad. I have learned from his life - his loving, giving, caring spirit. Goodbye for now, until we meet again.

Love you Brad!!!
