Bro. Ken left a message on July 1, 2017:
Jim Brackin was the Master of a thousand surprises. They usually started with his Dodge Ram sliding quietly into our driveway. After Otis, our dog, announced their arrival, the Brackins came to our door, always with something in their hands. Early morning it could be Danish from the Eastern Shore, late morning was a flea market find, like a 'basin wrench', afternoons was a personal item like a Brazos walking stick and evenings it was a sweet treat or a case of Sam Adams to ease the pain of the forthcoming 'Hearts' drubbing. The biggest surprise was always a cup of Pack's with layers of chocolate and raspberry which could arrive anytime day or night. Jim we love you (and Sandra) like a brother. Your Spirit lives on here at the house on the hill. Please continue your kindness for us Old Folks.
