Mr and Mrs Bratton were such wonderful people. I met them at their store and I shopped there often. They were so happy to order items if not in stock, answer questions and always a kind word and a smile. They were a McKinney institution! God bless the family and many friends who will miss them every day. Mary Virginia Dickerson, December 14, 2018 Mr Bratton was a great, giving, and caring man that loved his Lord. Rest In Peace in Heaven with your Savior and once again you and your sweet Mary are together.
