    Davey, Jeff and Mimi – Our thoughts and prayers are with you during the loss of your Dad. John was a good neighbor, helper and friend for many years while you all were young. Even after you all moved from across the street we continued our friendship. Cherish your memories with your Dad and know that he is walking those streets of gold. We love you all!

    John Brumfield was my brother-in-law and was the most wonderful husband to my sister. He was a kind, good, hard-working and honorable man that I am glad to have known. To have known him was to have loved him. You will be forever missed, John.
