The family of Ms. Mae West Missouri in consideration of the current health crisis facing our world, nation, state and local community, has decided to hold a private, family only, service for their loved one that will be livestreamed through Brown’s Funeral Home’s Facebook page. While the Missouri family would love to be surrounded by your presence, they acknowledge the health risks to family, church members, friends, and particularly to those who are most vulnerable to this disease, the elderly and those with chronic health conditions. What the family needs most at this time are your prayers and understanding. Thank you for your concern and cooperation.
