To my son, Michael and the family of Brad Bate. Even though our marriage did not continue, Brad gave me the greatest gift any mother would be grateful to receive, my son. Even thought Michael endured alot of trials throughout his childhood, he always came out stronger. Thanks to the many people that prayed, worked hard to keep him alive, healed his wounds, and taught him many things so that he could evenually come home. Michael grew up to be a very successful man and a good provider for his family, 2 sisters and me. Brad made a decision that he wanted but the other choices would of given him more time here on earth. To see his son succesed even more, or his grandkids play sports, graduate, go off and get married and evenually give us great grandkids. But he choose a differnt path and eventually the cancer took him from his son, his family and even his siblilings. I pray that Brad did not suffer for to long and that now he has his wings and is up in paradise with his mom, dad, and many others that went before him. I pray to watch over Michael, Amber and my grandkids as well as Brads siblings and their families and find peace that Brad no longer has to endure what the cancer does to a body. I ask that the people that read this, will help my son prepare his father a proper burial and other exspenses and donate to the sites my son posted on Brad's obituary. Rest in peace, Brad.
