    Auntie Brownie is my godmother. Although I did not know her in her later years, I have wonderful memories of her in my childhood. She started my Silverware pattern for me at birth and I still have it now. May your beautiful memories help you through your sorrow. I am blessed to have had this wonderful person in my life.
