My heart goes out to Browne family. I met Mr. Browne (50?) years ago and enjoyed seeing him at many celebrations with the Luthers over the years. I will always remember his kind words and genuine interest he took in others. A kind, kind person. I feel very fortunate to have known Jim, Pat, and their family.

Mr. Browne,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the the USN during WW II and for being a member of the Greatest Generation. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
