My sympathies go to Eddie and Tysie on the loss of your mother, and to your entire families. My mom and dad never forgot the great times they spent with your mom and dad at Johnson Memorial in Brownwood.

Deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mother. I knew your family from my visits to my uncle & aunt, Dan & Jo Murray, in Brownwood, when I was just a teenager or younger. I always liked both of your folks as they were warm & welcoming & your Dad always made me laugh. May the good memories of your Mom comfort you at this time.
