    Dear Bray Cousins: I am so sorry to learn of Aunt Lexie’s passing. We only saw all of you a few times, but we loved you all. I am so sorry, but I just learned of her passing today 6/13/2022. I was visiting with Linda, Denny’s wife and I asked how Aunt Lexie was doing. Linda thought that Denny had called me, but he did not, but Denny was not well for all of 2022 and up until his death on 2/21/22.
    May God comfort you all and heal the hole that is left behind in your heart. God Bless you all.

    Dear Bray Cousins,
    Your Mother, our Aunt Lexie, was loved and respected by all of us. Her beautiful smile, laughter, chuckle and bright eyes will always be remembered by the boys and myself. We have been sharing memories of being with you and our sweet Aunt Lexie on visits to Kentucky and Ohio. My Mother loved her sister, Lexie. Mom always looked forward to and enjoyed those visits wherever it may be, Ky, Ohio, or Rockville, IN.
    It is with much sadness on my part that I cannot be with you at the Celebration of Her Life. Mother Nature sure threw us a curve when making plans to be in the Cincinnati this weekend. Please, just know it was our blessing to call her Aunt Lexie! I will always cherish her memory and know for sure she is happy and at peace. We will miss her. Blessings and Love from the Burton family, Myrtle, Jerry, Terry, Tony Rich and Jason.

    This is for all the children. Lexie was always known as the fifth child in our family by another mother. She brought Charles and came to our house and asked my Dad to go with her to see her Mon and Dad. As usual Uncle Oscar took her and was her moral support. We all loved her, like she was one of us. The thing I remeber most in later years was her walking in the door with that big smile and saying hello Uncle Oscar and giving him a hug and a kiss. After that, the rest of use was greeted. I can’t express the love and caring she always showed. Take comfort in the fact she is being rewarded for all her kind acts toward everyone. It is with a sorrowful heart we say an earthly goodbye but the heavenly gates will open and she will be welcomed by all who have gone before. Love and Prayers to all the family.

    Lexie was my 1st cousin. She was never considered herself acousin because from the time she was 4 yrs old she spent many hours with my Mom and Dad. My Mom Dessie was her mom Dovie’s one and only sister. Lexie always thought that my Dad her (Uncle Oscar) hung the moon. Whenever she was in trouble she always ran to him and he would get her through whatever was going on. As long as I can remember she was just the older Sister. Always there with whatever was going on and always even in the lost of our parents. My children know her as Aunt Lexie and love her dearly. She is gone from this earth but will always be with us in our heart’s RIP Sis and enjoy our family that has gone on before you. See you soon Viv
