Dearest Bray Family, I send each of you my deepest sympany for the loss of your Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother. I think of so many fun times with my Aunt Pauline. One of my favorite is sitting on her front porch with her, learning to break green beans. I always think of her when I do this and it's a job I have learned that I really like. My thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you!! Wish I could have been there for you! Sincerely, Darlene and Don George and family
