I enjoyed working with Mr. Brackett many years ago, when I was a work study college student. He taught me the correct way to mow a lawn and paint a classroom. Betty, Lynn, and Dickie, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Betty, our sympathies go out to you and the entire family. We always enjoyed our talks on the front porch when you lived at AV.
Stuart always loved feeding the chipmunks and we appreciated having you two β€œanchoring” the street. Wishing you strength through this time and our love. Carolyn and Marion
