    Bonnie and Sharon, I am so sorry about Ma. She was a beautiful person,and although I didn’t get to see her since I moved away from Pulaski,I thought of her, and all our friends on the tract. I loved each and every one of them we grew up with. I will always remember us watching the Lone Ranger together, and your Dad calling me Freedie. I did not know until I read the paper on line or I would have come down for the wake. Once again, I am so sorry for your lose, I too lost my Mom (Annie Bell) so I know the pain you feel. God Bless you both.

    Bonnie and Sharon, I’m very sorry to hear of your loss. My mom, Glavis Brookman, and Faye were cousins (I think) and were close friends when we lived in Pulaski. In fact, on several visits to Pulaski after our move to TN, we stopped in to see Faye. I can still see her smile and hear her gentle words. My mom passed 13 years ago. I will carry Faye and mom in my heart.
