Grady and I are so sorry for your loss. Often times we were visiting at White Oak when Mr. Brown would come to see Ms. Gladys. The two of them would always pray together the sweetest prayers before he would leave. It was obvious that he was a very kind and caring man. May God bless you all with great memories of him during this time.

to the entire Brown family, We are so sorry to hear about Mr. T.L. He was a great family man that enjoyed life to the fullest. I had the opportunity to work and hunt with him for several years while also being a part of his family. I remember after a long day of work he was telling someone about going hunting that night. "When are you going to rest?" was the question and without batting an eye, Mr. T.L.s response was "When I die and go to my heavenly home" May you rest in your heavenly home T.L. Brown
