Eugene brown was world class. He used to say that and really mean it, "Evelyn Brown, you are world class." His family often feels like the only mistake he made, though we know it is not true ( and he would strongly disagree) is leaving us all to soon. I was always humbled by my fathers generosity. Though there was times that he had little, he would share the smallest piece of pie with anyone in his home and in his life, or for that matter a complete stranger. His friends were his family, and his family was the world to him! Often he would remind me that " if you give to the world, the world gives back to you" . He gave a spark, an edge, to everything he touched, and I feel he lives on in anyone who had the opportunity of knowing and loving him.
