My fondest teenage memories are in the Brown household. Mr. Brown in his chair in the den and Mrs. Brown in the kitchen. The last time I was in their home, was about 5 yrs ago, and all was the same....Mr. Brown in the den in his chair and Mrs. Brown in the kitchen. It was like I had just walked back into home. Mr. Brown will be missed dearly. I love Mrs. Brown and Charles very much and they remain in my prayers daily.
