Dear Judge Brown and Laurie, I feel privileged to have known Mrs. Brown and will always cherish her beauty and kindness to the Patton family. She taught me what a true Southern lady truly is. With all the grace, charm and that beautiful southern drawl..I can hear her now. When I think of my childhood I think of the beautiful family we lived next door too. I will always and forever look up to Ms. Mary Ann as she required us to call her, which took our northern blood some time to get used too! Mary Ann Brown was the one and only, just saying her name brings warmth to your heart. Love to you all and God Bless from the bottom of my heart.
