In the early afternoon hours of 9-20-13, I was driving from Ft. Wayne to Avon Indiana to meet up with my daughter and her family. They had just moved from NW Indiana, and bought a new house. The closing was the day before. Listening to the radio, I heard of your death. As a cop with 30 plus years, it hurt, but I have always tried to put OUR deaths in a place that wouldn't bother me.
The wife and I went to Avon on Friday, 11-8-13, to spend the weekend, then attend the Colt's game on Sunday. Our daughter took us to Crown Hill on Saturday 11-9-13, and drove us to the "HEROS OF PUBLIC SAFETY" section.
Brother, it brought me to my knees. Thirty plus years on the job, and what I saw was amazing. You, just like the other heros buried there, are missed, but you sure as hell are not forgotten. The wife, daughter, and grandson left me alone for a bit. I said what needed to be said. OUR BROTHERS/SISTERS will never be forgotten.
Thank you for your service and dedication. RIP.

ROD, I KNOW YOU ARE WATCHING OVER YOUR WIFE AND KIDS AND ARE SO PROUD OF THEM. THESE NEXT FEW MONTHS WILL BE HARD BECAUSE OF THE HOLIDAYS AND NOT HAVING YOU THERE PHYSICALLY. GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY AND KEEP THEM IN YOUR LOVING ARMS.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Rod was brutally murdered.

To Rod's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Bradway gave to his community and the citizens of Indiana, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 20, 2013.
