My condolences to the Braswell family....I had the pleasure of meeting and taking care of Mr. Braswell right before his transitioning. I cried when I returned to work and heard of his passing because I didn't get to tell him goodbye! He truly was a delight to be around. Rest in peace Mr. Braswell....thanks for the Fig Newton's!!

Your friend,
