    Joan,although geography has separated us from knowing one another as cousins. The passing of your father is, as you know, the passing of a tremendous man! My greatest memory of your dad was about 1985.I was passing thru,stayed the night with him, and asked him to please tell me his life story. What a privilege,what an honor! In my opinion, one the greatest men of this country has gone to be with our Lord. My mother is so glad to see him! It is in an honor to be able to say, Dee Stockton is my uncle!-- Very sorry I could not be with you. My prayers are with you and your family. Blessings, Dave McCall

    Thank you Pop for loving and caring for Mom. Your smile and gentle ways surely will be missed by all of the Brothers family but it is comforting to know that you are now with Mom to once again care for her.
