    We should all come together and have a bake sale or a fundraiser and all proceeded go to his family. I’d be willing to help anyway I can! I just don’t know how to get one going!!!

    @ Kim
    AGREE 100% with you. We do Not Trust that Go-Fund-Me thing, or any other on-line requests, have seen some stupid things being put out there for “gifting”.

    @ Timmons
    No idea how you conduct your financial affairs.
    We plan to write a CHECK as outlined in the article and go by one of the bank branches to donate.
    Sure, it may be a bit out of our way to do that. However, OUR First Responders sure never hesitate to step up when We Need Them.

    That’s all.

    Timmons……………. Just a suggestion. The Go fund me charges to use them. I myself do not trust those accounts.

    Prayers to this family. Thank you Chief Bradshaw for your service. And all you have done for Escambia County.
