To the family of Mrs. Aileen Brown,
I was saddened to hear about the passing of Mrs. Brown. Mrs. Brown and my mom were best friends and went to high school together in Mounds, Ill. Mom really enjoyed the times she spent with your mom. That was the last time I saw Mrs. Brown at my moms funeral. They were very close friends and did a lot of activities together . May she rest in peace,
