    Brandon. Glad your Grandmother had a long, good life. I knew her when she lived on Washington St. No matter the age it is hard to loose a close family member. I know you have been good to her. I miss your parents, I loved them.

    Brandon, I did not know your Grandmother, but my heart goes out to you at this time. She must have been a very strong lady to have made it to 100. I knew your Mom and Dad and loved both of them!

    If I might I will take this opportunity to ask you to submit your Dad’s picture for the Warrior Exhibit at the Rec Center. You may call me at 931-993-8353 for more info.

    Brandon, I am so sorry for your loss. Having known Edna and Doug, I feel that I knew Doug’s mom far better than I would from the times I met her and visited with her. Know that you and your family are in my prayers. Thinking of you
