    My thoughts are with all of you at this time. Mothers are the center of all our lives. They are there when we need a shoulder to lean on and the ones who kindly shakes their heads when we get up to pranks. Marge was always there when I think of our teenage years. The nights we listened to Elvis to all hours and the sleep overs in the basement.

    I know that I can remember and be overwhelmed by the sad times with the loss of a parent — but through the years the memories will only be more treasured. Know that your friends are there for you. All my love –

    As one who had the “inside view” on all things Brown, I will always remember the way that Mr. and Mrs. Brown welcomed all the “strays”. There was always enough room at the table. Mrs. Brown was one of the gentlest souls I’ve had the pleasure to know and she leaves behind a wonderful legacy.
