Postelle was a great man. He was always positive and had a smile on his face. I met Postelle back in my consumer days when he was a manger for Hunt Wesson and I was with P&G. I know he is in a better place now . My thoughts are with his family. Randy Overton

I first met Postelle when I was a buyer at Winn-Dixie and he called on me with Hunt-Wesson. As good as he was as a sales representative, he was much better as a man and friend. Pat I always thought you two were perfectly matched for each other and I know you miss him immensely. Our thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Reamey and Nita Winn

My late husband was Eddie Barron, Class of '57. He admired Postelle Brown more than anyone else he knew at Jackson. How wonderful that you and your high school sweetheart had all these years together. I pray that the days and months to come will be made easier by the memories you have made together.
