My condolences goes out the family,badder was a kind person and if you were in need,if he could help he would without you having to ask.I went to Ellet with him and from that time to this day if we saw each other it was with a smile.Family there's no pain that God can't heal and I know you all know that,he also told me that he has preacher's in his family.To his kids,the world always have things to say and that's truly because they didn't take the time to get to know the person,may God's peace hold you all, Much Love.
