  9. Mrs Browne was a special lady. I fondly remember her making cheeseburgers for us after playing basketball in the driveway or hanging out at the house while Richard did our Physics homework.
    She also picked me up on the way to middle school after I missed the bus and my mom made me walk 4 miles from out of town. She was one of those moms that paid attention and made sure to care for all the kids and not just her own. She will be missed.
