Reba went to the First Christian Church in Allen when I met her. She always had something good to say about everyone. She was a very generous and gracious lady. She was also very sweet and kind person. I felt privileged to know her. She will be missed. Sincerely, Rea Nelson Rea Nelson, January 22, 2007 Lucille was a neighbor of ours for over 20 years - a very good neighbor. I would till up her garden area so she could plant her tomoatoes and okra. I enjoyed playing bridge with her and Margaret and I always enjoyed the fellowship we shared at the Seniors Center. She will sure be missed in this neighborhood and in this home. Caesar PS - Sorry I couldn't make the funeral, as I have been sick with a cold. Caesar & Patricia (daughter) McBride, February 12, 2006 I remember her wonderful smile when I visited the Allen Senior Center. Vivian Denbow Vivian R Denbow, February 11, 2006 Having lived here over 30 years and Marilyn living across the street, I know how much her mom meant to her and Don. God Bless you in this time of need. Rea Nelson, February 10, 2006 Don,Sharon,Jim,and Barbara: I am so sorry to hear about Lucille. I had really hoped that she could be at the opening of the Senior Center. I want to come to the visitation this evening but I have been home sick all week so I don't think you and everyone else need my germs. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. She was a great lady. Susie Bartlemay, February 10, 2006 My deepest condolences to the Brazeal family. I know how Lucille was the inspiration behind so many family members.
