    MARYVILLE, Mo. On Thursday, November 23, 1995, while most families were watching the KC Chiefs and enjoying their afternoon Thanksgiving dinners, Bradie Lee Clements was born to Darren and Angela (Aley) Clements. From the moment Bradie came into this world until the minute he left us on April 20, 2015, to join his maternal grandparents, Robert and Roberta Aley in Heaven, Bradie never stopped moving. He kept his parents always wondering, Where is Bradie? Where did these new dogs come from, or who put the milk jug back in the refrigerator completely empty? And their loving response was always the same: Thats just Bradie.
