    Dear Aunt Wanda and Sherrie:

    I’m so sorry to hear that Uncle Brown has left us. Mom has kept me posted on his condition. I know he is in a better place and not hurting now. I know that doesn’t ease your pain now but know that you are in my prayers and thoughts. I love you both with all my heart, we’ll all miss him. May God bless and keep you now and always. I love you bunches!!!

    My prayers for the family.

    Brown was a good man and a very good friend of mine at Ford. I will never forget him.

    Mrs. Gray, my heart goes out to you during this time. I will never forget when you and Mr. Gray took me to The Perfect Pig in White Bluff after I had helped you all with some arrangements at West Harpeth. I have always admired you both and am praying for you and your family during this time.

    I am so sorry I did not find out until to late to come to the funeral home. I want you to know you are in my prayers. I always thought you were the most friendly couple I knew. We have spent some good times together and I love you both.
