Aunt Connie Mack
The day after she passed on, it was very strange. Her birthday is 2 days before Leonard and Anaya's birthday. On their birthday, I ordered from pizza from Pizza Hut. The delivery man knocked on my door and handed me the pizza. When I tried to pay for the pizza, the delivery man bowed and then tried to walk off. I kept trying to give him the money, and he kept declining my offer as he backpedaled and walked away. We figured that it was some kind of mistake, so we left the money on the counter for 3 days, thinking he would return. We got free pizza that day, but there’s no doubt in my mind that it was a parting gift from Big Money Connie, one of the matriarchs of the family, Aunt Connie Mack.
Aunt Connie Mac and Aunt Beverly, we want you to know that we love you and that we are truly going to miss both of you. Our visits home will never be the same without you.
On June 9th, 2016, our Creator decided it was time to call you home.
Our hearts are full of sorrow, but we find comfort in knowing you’re not alone.
The Brown family is mourning a beautiful woman whose essence can never be replaced.
From now on, none of us can pass by Delhi St. without visions of your lovely face.
We will miss all the special moments and your thoughtful phone calls.
No one can ever substitute who you were and what you meant to us all.
If any of us needed anything, we could always depend on you.
No matter the ups and downs, for family, you always came through.
A warm, loving, nurturing, and selfless woman is the definition of who you are.
I am disappointed that we cannot be there to bid you farewell, but we send our love from afar.
Aunt Beverly, you are the branch that breathes the soul and life into our family tree.
We will miss you immensely as your children and grandchildren continue your legacy.
As you enter the heavenly world, you have been granted the opportunity to join with family you have lost along the way.
Please give Aunt Sunny and Grandma Doris a great big hug from all of us and tell them we love them and miss them every day.
Today we remember and give honor to a great woman who we love and trust.
Let us reminisce and laugh at the moments we’ve had with Beverly Brown, for these are some of the most valuable gifts she has left us.
Soon we will meet again, but until then spread your wings and be free.
Aunt Beverly, thank you for your love, but most of all, thank you for the memories.
