Micheal Bradley Oliver

Yesterday was a really sad day. My sweet, loving, handsome and full of life nephew was killed in an automobile accident 11 years ago yesterday. All day I would look at my watch and think about what I did that day and how everything was still fine. Then I looked out the window and saw the sun setting about the time the accident happened and it was still hard to believe it was true. I remember that empty feeling that day and also not believing that it was real. We had already been through one tragic event....daddy had died unexpectedly 10 months before....mommas cancer had reoccurred and I can remember thinking why and how all of this could be happening. I now rejoice because I KNOW where they are. With the King of Kings, Lord of Lord's...worshiping and waiting for us to all be reunited again.


  1. This was a tragic story I heard from Angie a few years ago when we lived together. My heart broke for her. I just can't comprehend the thought of something like this happening.

    Last year after moving to Frisco, not knowing anyone!  I made a good/close friend that I believe God planned. It took my friend a little while to open up to me, but she had told me the tragic story of losing her brother in an automobile accident too. I thought about Angie the second she told me the story and every time she talks to me about it. I think about the Oliver family.

    My friend has a very strong faith and she encourages me every day with her strength and walk with God. Angie has the very same faith, and I believe that’s what brought us close together. God turns bad situations in great friendships and plants seeds in so many hearts. Angie and my other friend’s "life story" brings faith, strength, and hope in so many lives.
    I just love you OLIVERS! :)

  2. Losing Bradley touched so many of us. I think of ya'll every year at this time. Love ya!
