Dear Bennie Ray, When you were a baby, I would carry you around in my arms and lead Mark around by my hand. I loved you both so much. I am glad I found you on Facebook not so long ago and shared stories of our past. Your grandfather, John Mitchell Brown, was our pastor and the man that baptized me, so your line of our family has meant a lot to me over the many years. I know he, and your grandmother Brown, have welcomed you with open arms, as well as your dear grandmother Bryant, whom I loved dearly. Goodbye for now, Dear Cousin, until we meet again. Love from my heart, Martha Sue.

Beau, I still can’t believe you have gone home. I will always remember the times we shared at the dome home taking care of the horses and talking about life. Heaven has a Great man there today. You taught me so much about life and you showed us all every day what a man should be. I Love ya Cousin! I sure wish we could have talked about Life one more time! I know Mom and Dad are happy to see you as they would talk of you and Mark often and you would always bring a smile to their faces. Rest easy Soldier! •slow Salute•
