First off , this is Penny, my Lil' Brother Paul died 6-11-07, we are from a small town: Marmaduke, Arkansas, he was 28 yrs. old, my (Our) mother, is the manager of the "Best" convience store in town(there's only 2),we have a population of only about 2700 people, I swear my Mom could run for Mayor and win! She is so 'Loved' by everyone, when my Lil' brother died, he had 'No' insurance of any kind, the funeral home in a town 10 miles away, said we had to have the 'whole' amount (4500 dollars), the 'cheapest'-'Best' way we could go, up front, well, in 'Our' world, thats asking/saying ALOT, we didn't have it! Our Town: donated $2,000, and my Mom's church covered the rest!! I mean people, 'GOOD' People were out raising money for "OUR" Loved One!! To give Him a 'Proper' burial! Everyone in 'Our' Town loved my Lil' brother Paul, it was " AMAZING "!! I wish we could do more for 'Our' town than just a 'Thankyou'.. I 'LOVE' the south,they are and the town of Marmaduke, Arkansas are " AWESOME "!!!! I ( WE ) will 'Forever' be 'Grateful' to "OUR" Town for "ALL" they done for my family and me!!....Penny
