(Emailed Response to Notice that Brad was moving to CA) Dear Brad, I know this has been a very difficult decision for you but It truly breaks my heart that you will be moving. We have been so blessed that the kids have been able to take piano from someone so talented and gifted as a teacher. There aren't words to say what all you have done for Julia and Karl. Karl is so gifted and truly loves music, and I know he will find it very hard to learn from someone else. Julia, well, what can I say. She has been with you for a very long time, and you have always brought out her best. Both Julia and Karl have developed such a relationship with you that I know it will be very hard for them to want to take piano from anyone else. I will find it hard for them to take piano from anyone else. We will have to be thankful for the time they had with you. We will keep you in our prayers because I'm sure it will be difficult to leave and say goodbyes for all of us. Kathy H.
(Emailed Response to Notice That Brad was moving to CA) Mr Love, What sad news you have given us, but we want you to know that we understand your concerns for your family and wish you all the very best. I would like to inform you that you have been wonderful to our boys and they will miss you immensely, as will we. You taught Solomon how to be musical. I hear this from his band teachers a lot. They have a lot of respect for him and his abilities to know what he is supposed to do and how to execute it. Music has made him less shy. You were so very good with him and he never wanted to let go of your lessons. He always practiced with out complaining because he wanted you to be proud of what he had accomplished. Sebastian has grown into his music due to your interest in him and giving him confidence in all he did. You sparked new ventures with music for him and he has shined every since. You made him work and let him know you were aware of his abilities. These abilities have become known to his SHS band teachers and it is all because you have given Sebastian the knowledge and confidence to perform and write his own music. He will never have a teacher like you again. You always encouraged him to compose and he hasn't stopped! Mr. Love, we hope and pray that you will have time to teach other students in California. You have a true gift with students. God be with you and your family, Mr. Love. You brought a lot of joy to our family and you will never be forgotten. All the best, Elisa G.

(Emailed after notice that I was moving to CA) Brad, I am so sorry to hear this news. You've been such an important part of our lives here and I can't imagine finding anyone we like nearly as much as you. Of course, we wish you all the best in your move to California and I appreciate that you want to be close to your brother and family but we will really miss you. I am in Washington so I won't be able to relay the news to Audrey before her lesson today. She may get upset so you may want to let me tell her, I'll leave it up to you. Either way, we will definitely look to you for help in finding the right piano teacher for the kids. Please let me know who you think would be the right fit for the kids. I think Audrey may go far with her piano but if she doesn't have a teacher that is encouraging then I don't see her continuing. Anyway, let's talk about it when you can or you can email me if you prefer. Again, I can't tell you how sorry we are to see you go, you have been such a treasure to our family. Marcia B.
