I graduated with Cleaster and whenever I saw her, she was smiling and upbeat. After my knee replacement back in February, she came to see me when I had a brief stay at the rehab facility she worked at. We talked, she joked, and then back to work she went. I'll always remember her kind words and encouragement. She will be missed.

Cleo was a beautiful person and had a personality that you couldn't help but love her. We all grew up in Christian Valley and shared some really good times together. Cleo loved God her family and all the people that she gave excellent care to. I will always remember her and her determination to serve God while she had a chance. She would say don't weap for me I knew God for myself. I've gone to receive what he promised eternal life. Sitting down by the riverside. We loved her but God came back and claimed his own.

Ms Brown, Horace, Janet & family,

Cleaster is at peace. Think of the good times and smile. For comfort, read Ecclesiastes 3:1-15,17,19,20,22. May The Creator bring you peace during this time. Back in the days...

Words cannot express my heartfelt sorrow. Cleaster was a childhood friend of my sister, cousins and myself. We had many good times for many years. I remember when we use to race, Mr. Brown could out run all of the kids in the neighborhood.

We all loved the Brown family. I continued to see Cleaster after we grew up. I would sing at the nursing home where she worked and our churches would fellowship often and we always hugged and talked family and how everyone was doing.

My heart is heavy today as I realize my lifelong friend is gone.
I pray for Mrs. Brown,Janet,Columbus and all the children and grandchildren of Cleaster.

Rest In Heaven Cleaster,

Love always
