Mr. Braswell was born in Fort Pierce, Florida on October 12, 1927 to Henry Grady Braswell and Celestine Mixon Braswell. When he was two years old, the family moved to Middle Georgia where they finally settled in Macon.

Ed and Sara were a beautiful Godly couple who nurtured many young people who were members of Tabernacle Baptist including me. Sara was my Sunday School teacher for many years and I always remember her sweet and gentle voice and spirit.

Ed always had a wonderful smile on his face. He was a faithful servant of God at home and at Tabernacle. I thank God for him and Sara and for their unselfish service. May Sara and family be surrounded with God's peace and comfort.

A wonderful Christian man. He and Ms. Sara used to pick me up and take me to church when I lived in Jefferson Hills as a kid. A wonderful Christian family. I will always be grateful for their love and kindness.
Ms. Sara, Emily, and family.
May our Lord give you strength and comfort.
We love you.
