    To the family of James Brown ;
    With deep remorse I just read of J. C’s passing. James had just started comming to the Galveston County Senior Citizen,s club on 27th Street & Hwy. 6,, in Dickinson Texas. He was a gentleman in every way; every day; He had to sit really close to the television. Then when he got more familiar and seen familiar faces he’d sit with some of the men & talk. He happened to mention to me that the lady who brought him did so on her way to a computer class at the library.
    We have coffee or water and sometime a cookie and watch t..v.or talk , some play games some read & work puzzles; just various different ways to pass the time. Then we have a short exercise program then at 11:30 we have lunch. After lunch there may be a short trip to a store then back to the center where the bus takes us home. It is a great place for seniors as I am and as James was.
    May his soul rest in everlasting peace. May his family know he was among friends here; know we appreciated his prescence however brief for us it was.
    When I first met him ; I tried to be “funny”, and made a little ditty up; “james Brown went to town with his britches hangin’ down,,” I just laughed, and laughed. Then I seen James wasn’t laughing. I realized he couldn’t hear, I really felt bad, as I wear a hearing aid..by the grace of God as my hearing ”drops’
    Every so often and I was fortunate enough to have Beltone “tweek” it.
    I think I can speak for the whole of us at Dickinson Seniors. God Bless you all
