Ms. Brown was my third cousin. Her mother was the sister to my grandmother, Cora Benson Hegg. Her dad was the brother to my Grandpa
William Anton Hegg. Her Brother was Fred Hegg who passed on Nov. 28, 2007. My father was William Wayne Hegg who passed on July of 1979. I knew of Ms. Brown briefly and she was truly a very dedicated human being. If I could only be half the human being she was. I just wish we could have cloned Pat, Fred and Wayne several thousand times over this world would be a better place, full of more dedicated human beings that care for others.
