    Thinking of all the Browns and family. He will be missed but never forgotten. Best fish fries in the back yard ever. Was lucky to live close to him and glo for many years. Loved them both. God has reunited a wonderful couple. Bless you all.

    Sorry to hear of your lost. My late husband, Milton Hollars was with Sherman in the home. When we where in Nashville we would see him and I listened to their stories when they were younger. Hope they get together and have a game of golf.

    I only got to visit with them at their home in Hendersonville once. Wish I could have talked to them more. Marie Longway and I had dinner with them at their home. Gloria graduated with Marie and I, and we got to know Sherman while at the 707th Squadron in Grand Rapids. Will miss them both always!

      Thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. I was honored to have met him on one of my visits to TN. He is now peacefully with his Gloria and may you cherish all of the wonderful memories with him.

    Kevin, Devin and Bandon you and your family are in my prayers during this difficult time. Sherman was an awesome man and everyone loved him. I grew up in Spring Hill and went to school with Sherman. He will never be forgotten, but will live on in our hearts.

    My most precious angel was taken away from me with no word, no reason, nothing. My heart is broken into a million pieces. I wish I could’ve been there holding his hand and giving him all of my love the last moments of his life. I wish I could’ve been apart of the funeral to say my goodbyes and pay my respects to the man who raised me my whole life. He was my best friend and unfortunately I wasn’t aware of his passing. God will take care of this situation.. I know in my heart that in the end I will be forgiven and my god sees all. “God said he will pay me back double for all the wrongs against me” I know that my precious pops/father is in heaven with our Heavenly Father and has me in the palm of his hand. Pops knows how much I love him and the several attempts I’ve made to see him, he knows if I would’ve known about the funeral that I would’ve been there. God will always be on the throne.
