Our deepest sympathy to Cary and his family as well as Ms. Agnes. We are Butch and Sandy Ramsey who live across the street from the homeplace. Mrs. Brown was a genuinely sweet person. She was the first to welcome us to the neighborhood when we moved in spring of 1995. Our first morning at the house she brought us a cake. We always kept an eye on the place when we knew she was away. Please let us know if we can do anything for you. Wishing you God's grace, love and mercy.

So very sorry for your family's loss. I lived in the little white house beside your mom and dad when I was a little girl. Mrs. Brown was a sweet lady. My family sends loving prayers to your family. Love Billy, Catie (Bowman) Beacham and family
