When I heard today
That Bradley had lost the fight
I had no words to say
To make things right

He was such a brave little boy
And I would willingly take his place
He  filled his mum & dads life with joy
Now they have  a huge aching space

So many people that young guy touched
He fought so hard until his time come
And I know he will be missed so much
Goodnight, God Bless brave little one

Very, very sorrow to read this wonderful poem about Bradley and his fight. It is bad enough when the old ones give up the fight, but when the very young are stilled, it is exasperatingly sad. You gave him a great epitaph.

Thank you Jerry. Life can be so cruel. I don't think I could cope with the loss of my child under those circumstances. I appreciate your comment my friend
