Lori James (Brad's wife), George South, Dick Bourne (Mid-Atlantic Gateway), and Brad Armstrong (Brad James) together in 2005.

It is with great sadness I say goodbye to one of my best friends Brad Armstrong. I love you Brad. But I only say goodbye in this world, because I will see Brad again one day. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)      - George

 

George's Book



 

"Hello my friend, we meet again, It's been awhile, where should we begin?
Feels like forever
Within my heart a memory, A perfect love that you gave to me
Oh, I remember

When you are with me I'm free, I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly, This brings tears to my eyes
My Sacrifice

We've seen our share of ups and downs, Oh how quickly life can turn around
In an instant
It feels so good to realize, What's in yourself and within your mind
Let's find peace there."

From Creed's "My Sacrifice" - Words by Mark Thomas Tremonti

 

There is no way that I can explain how my heart feels. I have lost a mom, a dad, plus a brother, but this is different.

I first met Brad Armstrong in 1983 in Atlanta, GA, working for Georgia Championship Wrestling. I was already so much in love with the Armstrong family that I got a picture with Brad that night. Oh, Jesus I am so thankful for that picture.

Brad was one of my very best friends. Just two days ago we spoke and laughed about how old we both were. I still have his birthday wish to me on my answering machine. I have cried more in the last four hours than I have in my whole life. I love Lori and Jillian so much and would give my life to be with them right now. Jesus, please hold them!

To be in the ring with Brad was a gift from God. I always felt like time stood still for me when I locked up with him. Oh, Jesus what I would give to take his dropkick and armdrag one more time. I know that Jesus is real because he is the only thing that is keeping me together. I know death is not the end, but I miss Brad and that smile. His wife told me today that he kept my book beside his favorite chair and showed everyone. Oh, I am so glad that I finished it. I could write another book on just what ''Mr. R'' meant to me, but I need to go. Brad, I am not saying goodbye, just see you very soon my friend.

''Life is but a journey, with death being a doorway to eternal life. The keeper of the keys, being Jesus.''

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. JOHN 3:16.  I love you Brad.     -George
