  • Mrs. Brown and girls:

    After Marsha Lynn called to let me know of Mr. Brown’s “home going”, I just sat in my chair and slid back in time remembering all the sweet things of so long ago as a kid. Oh, that the kids of today could have the huge, loving extended family that I grew up with. Being at your house was like being at home!

    I will miss Mr. Brown very much, but know that he is so happy, free of pain and there with my Daddy and Grandma and Grandpa Hammack.

    I pray that God will wrap His arms tightly about you as you go through your time of sorrow, but will place sweet precious memories in your heart to bring a smile to your face.

    God bless you and I love you all –

    Myrna Mae
