Sunny's Memorial Presentation

Albert Bragg on Oct 28, 2019

I’d like to express my sincere condolences at the loss of your Mother. Both her and your Dad graciously invited me into their home and extended me the hospitality that is normally reserved for family. She will be deeply missed, what an impressive woman!

May God Keep You Close,

Albert A. Bragg, Jr.

Patricia Grana on Oct 26, 2019

CandleI will always remember Mrs. Young (that's how I addressed her, always) as one of the most elegant and intelligent persons I know. She will be missed. Her spirit is free and has moved on to a higher realm. With love, Patricia Grana
