John M Brown Jr

Gramma was a person who embodied the Love of God to everyone she met. This world has lost a wonderful person, friend, and Gramma. My life will be always touched by what she did for me and I will be a better person for having her in my life. I hope and pray that through this I gained just a tenth of the unconditional love she showed family, friends, and total strangers. I love you Gramma and you will definitely be missed by a host of people

Jeffrey Lee Zahn

For some reason you have always been there ffor me, ESPECIALLY when no one else would be. I have been clean a year and I MUST credit it to you. With out you in my life daily it will be an ongoing relearning of how to live my life. You have been there for me in every way since I was a child and in some respects I still am that afraid little boy. Now I must be a man and make you as proud of me as you deserve me to be. I attribute my compassion for others. You will be missed by myself daily, hourly and for quite some time. My only wish is that you watch over me and be my guardian Angel, as you have bee through these 42 years. I love you Gramma

In my heart I celebrate your meeting Jesus but will think of you often and with affection. Your Neighbor Lady, Beth
