I never knew a kinder, more gentle man than my dad. He never raised his voice in anger, spoke ill of any man nor burdened others with his sorrows. While we never spent a lot of time together as father and son,there is no other man I respected more. I will forever miss him. Gary Braswell, September 12, 2007
