Thank you, Sue for letting me know that your Dad died and has joined your Mom in heaven. I have such fond memories of our families visiting and spending time together. It was always so much fun and your family home was always busy and full of faith and love.

I know that our Moms were not only cousins but dear friends growing up. Bet there was quite the reunion for our four parents!

Hugs and love to you all!

I am honored to have met Bob, and thus the extended Brown family. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to perform for his Celebraton of Life. You are all in my heart and thoughts through this transitional time. I can't help but smile when I think of Bob, and wish the same for those who knew him. May he rest easy, in peace, and never be forgotten.

And I heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight,"May God bless Grandpa Brown, and to all a good night..."
