Judy and Steve, J. Browne was a great ambassador for education/learning.He was a kind and gentle man for all of the years I knew him.When I saw him earlier this year, he was excited about his upcoming birthday.I am so glad he reached that milestone - 100 years is quite an accomplishment!I hope the love and kindness of friends and family surround you in this time of grief.I know that God has a wonderful new soldier in His battalion of angels for peace.

What a wonderful man and a life well lived.I have fond memories of taking my daddy, Edwin McNeill over to visit J. Browne and Zora. He truly had a desire for life long learning.I will treasure those visits and the conversations about family members never forgotten. May your wonderfulmemories overshadow your grief as you talk, laugh and remember.
