I am so very sorry I could not get to the visitation or the funeral. I did call Vera but could not get away to bring her. I had hoped we could be there to represent those of us who had been with the Singing Wives from June 1971 to the end. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers today. Peg, be safe on your mission trip to Mexico on Sunday.
I sang with the Singing Wives of Ministers Choir for 28 years, most of the time under Elinor's direction. She was fun, warm, kind, very musically gifted, and a committed servant of the Lord. I was privileged to call her my friend. I am so very sorry for your loss.
All of you have held a special place in my heart for many years. My sympathy to you all in the loss of your wonderful mother. She has had a busy and fruitful life. You will be with her again in eternity.
My deepest Sympathy is extended to the family. I remember all the fun times I spent with Elinor & Jack, babysitting with the children at home in Derby and at Lakeside.
Rev John (Jack) Brown and wife Elinor and children were the mentors of the MYF youth group at McKendree Methodist Church in the 1950's. They are valued Godly people.
