Brown, Finis: In Loving Remembrance - Death seem doubly sad when it takes from the home and loved ones the pet and idol of family and friends. This was true in the death of little Finis Brown. His was such a sunny loving disposition he drew all hearts to him and made friends of all who knew him. I was his teacher for one and a half terms of school, and he was always gentle, kind and obedient. He was indeed a bright child and in his short school life impressed me with his ability to do things. Seldom a day passed that he did not bring me nice fruit or choice candy. Just an example of his thoughtfulness. The eight short years of his life seemed all too short and his going away so sudden and unexpected; but he was ready to go. This makes a strong tie on the other side for his loved ones. In my experience as teacher this was the first one of my puple (sic) to be removed by death, and we certainly do miss him. Every day something comes up causing the children and I to talk about Fines. We all miss him and shall never forget his smiling face and happy disposition. His Teacher.

Brown, Grover C. (Tyler, Okla., July 26, 1914): To Herald Readers, Pleasant Hill Students and many friends of Grover C. Brown of Flynns; Lick, Tenn. In writing this letter to the Herald it becomes my painful duty to say to you all that our friend and fellow student, Grover C. Brown is no more. On the 29th of July word came to me that Grover Brown was sick, even unto death, in Durant, Okla. I was teaching at the time but turning my school over to my wife, I hastened to his bedside; but to late! The grim destroyer was already even there, there waiting to do his ghastly work. I reached him Tuesday 9 a. m.; he died Wednesday at 4:40 p. m. He had been confined to his bed about two weeks. He visited us five weeks ago in our home, secured a school near us, was in Durant doing State Normal work at the time of his death. He was a student at Pleasant Hill Academy for two years and it was there I knew and loved him. He was unconscious when I reached him being rational only for a moment at a time. His mother came but too late for him to scarcely know her. For a few minutes at a time he seemed to know that the one he loved best on earth was with him; but just for a moment and then unconsciousness. To those who knew Grover, I need not say that he was as tender a child, as loving as a fond mother and in his breast throbbed as noble a heart as is given to man. His devotion and love for his mother was most touching. All through his illness, as long as he knew anything, he would never give up for them to send for his mother, saying she was old and could not stand the trip He died among people who were almost strangers, yet he never lacked anything. Money, time, service, medical aid of the best skill were all brought to bear, but of no avail. Such untiring devotion, such faithfulness, such loving kindness I have never before witnessed. He had been attending the South-western State Normal at Durant and the attention and respect paid him by the faculty and student body was most beautiful. Flowers covered the casket from head to foot, tokens of love from his county (Marshall) teachers, also from S. E. S. N. Faculty and others. During the funeral services which were conducted by the pastors of the Methodist and Christian church, a male quartet from the Normal School sang three most beautiful songs. Lead Kindly Light, Rock of Ages, Nearer My God to Thee. After the funeral services we laid him to rest in the Durant Cemetery where he will wait the last great day when the earth and the sea shall give up its dead. He has lived and died, the song has been sung, the story has been told, but his influence will live on in the hearts of his loved ones, and 'twill only be 'n that One Day when all things will be made plain, that we shall know the mystery if God's plane (sic) for us all. "Now we see through a glass darkly, then face to face." For we know and feel assured that he has fought the fight, he had kept the faith. In the name of all his friends I wish to thank the people of Durant for their kindness to our dear friend, Grover Brown. Robert Lee Gentry. [Date: 8/27/1914, Vol. 12, No. 34, Page 4]
