|I lived at Brunetta's brothers (Wellwood Williams) farm while in my teen years. Brunetta and Francis were always very kind and understanding of all us Holmans at the farm. Brunetta was my 4H leader and I admired her abilities and enthusiam very much! We all need adults to look up to and emulate and the whole Christian family had my complete admiration. I want you all to know I am so sorry for your loss but you were lucky to have Burnetta's guidance and care!|

|My aunt Brunetta was a great aunt to me. Actually Aunt Brunetta and Uncle Francis had a special part in my life while I was growing up. Our family would enjoy trips to their farm and a occasional family meal together with Francis's clan. I remember working in the fields and then coming into the house where we would have a nice meal that Aunt Brunetta would have fixed for us. After praying for our meal we would eat and then have our nap time which consisted of sitting while holding a pencil, when the pencil dropped the nap was over and we went back to work. While I was working at John Deere's Uncle Francis and Aunt Brunetta asked me to look after the buildings and the hogs. I remember feeling so terrible when the hogs came down with TGE and they came back to all of that problem. I also remember when they offered me to farm their farm. It came at a time when Judy and I were praying about becoming missionaries and though they wanted me to farm their farm they encouraged me to serve the Lord and go to the mission field. Uncle Francis and Brunetta were so encouraging for us to visit when we came back from the mission field and would always ask us tons of questions about our work. From the beginning of our joining staff with Campus Crusade for Christ they were very faithful in supporting our work and saw it as if they were doing the work through us. In the last visits I had with Aunt Brunetta she would always say "Mike Franci always loved you" and then she would cry at his memory. Aunt Brunetta was a great Aunt and I am sad to see her go but I know one day when I die I will see her and Uncle Francis again. To Aunt Brunetta's family I send my sympathy at your loss and encourage you to embrace the faith she had so that one day you will be able to see her again.
In Jesus Name,
