I remember your mother fondly. She taught French at St. Luke's while I was still a teacher there. Her legacy is her 2 charming daughters. "Well done, good and faithful servant..."

Mrs. Browning, I did not know you but I know your daughter Michaux quite well, and what a wonderful legacy she is. Know that you lived your life in such a way to create a sensitive, charming woman who also makes the air shimmer a little when she passes by.

Sharon was and is one of the best sister-in-laws you could hope to have. She raised two wondeful daughters in her image. We will miss her and know that God will take good care of her. Michaux and Allison have our deepest sympathy.

Mom, you were beautiful, charming, witty, and bright; the air in every room you entered shimmered a little after you walked through the door. You lent your excitement and style to all the events of our lives, and we will never forget your presence there.
