I was blessed to have the opportunity to have Rad in my life and heart for only 8 years. He was in my heart, my father inlaw. He could put a smile on someones face and make someone laugh even under the worse circumstances. I can imagine the loss that his family and lifetime friends feel, and pray for their strength during this time. Rad was a man full of faith and had a positive outlook on every situation. God gained another angel.
