ADD A MEMORY

I have such fond memories of this kind man...Robert Lee was my mother's first cousin. Spent many weekends with him at my Aunt Martha's farm in Drexel...she was his mother and such a caring woman. I played softball in the Kansas City area and he was my biggest fan. So good to all the Braswell kids at the farm and to me and my brother Joe. Always had time to listen to us and offer kind advice. I regret that I will be unable to attend services due to previous commitment. Love to Letha that beautiful young lady he married many years ago and to the two children, Steve and Connie. The memories are many and the love great. Prayers of comfort and hugs of love to you all.
