*********RIP Chuck Brinkley*********
This lovely family were friends of my mothers. A nicer, gentler man you would never hope to meet. His loving wife, Virginia, lived her daily life in true Southern charm. She was bubbly, funny and liked by all who knew her. Their beautiful daughters who perished with them -Pamela, what a beauty she was! Inside and out she was a beautiful spirit. Little Angela was as sweet as the air on a spring morning. No doubt these girls learned well from their loving parents.
All these years I have kept their obituary with my family photographs and am happy to now have somewhere to go and honor their memory. I wish the whole world could have known these special, one of a kind, loving individuals.
