Brown Family,

My thoughts are with you all during this sad time. Alberta was truly a strong woman. I have admired and respected her since I first met her in the '80s when I started doing their tax work. She impressed me with her strong will and intelligence. She was always engaged and even through adversity never viewed herself as a victim. It impressed me that she was active and bowled well into her late 80s. She cared deeply for her family. You can be proud to have had her for your Mom.

I would like to send my deepest sympathy to Rick and Janice, Randy, and Robbie. Aunt Alberta was such a lovely lady and I will always remember her contagious laugh! My children will never forget the time Aunt Alberta and Mackie traveled down to visit us in Victoria, KS to deliver a 10 minute VHS video of my wedding! She made my boys laugh and they learned that you always pass food around the table to your right. May she Rest In Peace
