        On Friday October 10, 2003, God walked through the garden, selected and took with him one of the most beautiful flowers. Alice Logan Bradley departed this life at Chippenham Hospital in Richmond, VA., transferring from labor to reward.

        The daughter of the late Weldon Logan and Pearl Scott Logan, was born June 23, 1928 in Powhatan County, VA.

        Alice Bradley received her education in the Powhatan County Public School System. She was employed in the State Police building for many years.

        On February 9, 1947, she was joined in holy matrimony to Raymond Cleveland Bradley, Sr. To this union were born four daughters one still born and six sons. Alice was preceded in death by two sons, Raymond C. Bradley, Jr. and Wayne A. Bradley; two brothers, Randolph Logan and Weldon Logan, Jr. and a great-grandson, Shuron Jamison.

        Alice Bradley joined Greenbrier Baptist Church many years ago. Later on in life, she attended Future Church of Christ and Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Alice confessed her salvation years ago. With the struggles of life her faith was not what it should have been. Praise be to God on October 7, 2003 late in the midnight hour, Alice called out "I want Jesus" and gave her life back to the Master.

God saw you getting weary, so he did what what He thought best.
He came and stood beside you and whispered, "Come and Rest".
You bid no one a last farewell, nor even said goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why.
When God called you home to rest, you didn't go alone,
For part of us went with you on the day God called you home.
Sleep on Dear Mother and take your well deserved rest,
We all love you but God loves you best!

The Family
