To the Brothers Family
The photo you selected is so her likeness. Our condolences to all. We attended Glad Tidings where
Sis Brothers was a strong influence in our lives. She was a minister's wife and pianist, our Sunday School teacher and gracious spiritual leader. She pushed us to have excellence in all things. We remember her funny laugh and her words of wisdom which still ring in our ears. May her precious memories fill your hearts and may God comfort you with His Holy Spirit. With our love and prayers at this time. Tony & Karen Longoria

Sis. Brothers was always an inspiration to me. I met her at Camp Pearl Wheat. in Kerrville where we attended for many years. Later, we reconnected at Calvary Temple Assembly of God. Her smile and sweet nature encouraged me in many ways. We will miss her, but we will see her again.
