The Brays were part of my family since I was very young and were like my mother's parents. I have so many fond memories of Mrs. Bray and will miss her greatly but know she's at peace. Sorry for your loss Mr. Bray and family.

I will always keep looking for Mrs. Bray as I run by their house. She would always smile and wave. I will miss her. My heart aches for Nancy, her father, and the rest of her family.
