Sorry for your loss, Your family has been in my family's prayers.

Elaine A. Brown-Wilmore01/15/2013

My mother was a superior friend, wife, grandmother, niece, aunt, sister-in-law, mother-in-law nurse, daughter, granddaughter, and christian. She was kind,attractive,trusting,healthy,enenergetic,religious,intelligent, nurturing, and eloquent. Among her other virtuous qualities, she was magnificent, industrious, loving, daring, righteous, educated; but demanded the very best from everyone. Mrs. Brown, affectionally and reverently known as; Ma, nana, grandma, aunt Katherine, sister sweetie pie, pistol, and fire cracker #1,was exceptionally perfect in my eyes. she was always pleasant and sincere. I want you to know that my mother was beautiful, respected, outstandingly wonderful and neat as a pin. RIP, My QUEEN, you will be sorely missed by your daughter and family, friends all those you met.

Dear Elaine - My sincerest condolences to you and your family as you grieve the loss of your mother. Aunt Katherine was my "last aunt" on this earth and I know she is now resting in peace in HIS heavenly kingdom. My prayers and blessings are with you and your family.
