    DeeAnn, Deryl, Rodney and Jane,
    May the Lord comfort you. Your mother gave me a surprise call a few months ago and we had a nice visit over the phone. She was a woman who was admired by so many people for her caring and thoughtful ways.

  2. Bobby Fagan says:

    Sorry for the loss of your mother. It has been a long time since I have seen Mrs Brown or any of the Browns’. But I have not forgotten your moms warm home her cooking and sewing. I considered your house on Polk and then Johnson Drive my home also because I was just one of the family. It also reminds me of the wonderful childhood I had. I consider this time as one of the happiest in my life. Robbie, Harvey and the kids are one key reason this is so. I will always have a deep love for you. Rodney give me call if you have time 903 715-1857.
