Mrs. Brandon so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. What a testimony of living and sharing together 66 years of married life. What a true blessing. Just want you to know how much I appreciate you and Mr. George always being so kind and friendly to any of the Wilson family when they visited at Little Mulberry. I am sure he will be missed by many especially all the people he has been involved with at the church, working with them, praying with them and just being a part of that sweet church family. I pray that you feel the presence and closeness of Jesus during these days and all the days before you.
