To the family
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Young. He was a very nice and compassinate person. My father Elmore Harris Sr and my uncle Curtis Harris Sr. grew up together and were friends and looked out for each. May Mr. Young rest in peace.

Many 4th of July’s were spent at Bray’s house, with relatives, friends, food, swimming, and music. Such wonderful memories. Bray’s kind spirit always shined in the almost 30 years I knew him. A humble and peaceful man, always extending a hand to help someone. You will be missed. Much love to all your family. Thanks for such great times Bray!
