To the editor:
Home is where the heart is. I never fully understood what that meant until recently.
When my father, Randal Brown, moved to Brunswick County in the early ‘90s, he told me he had found his home and he would never leave. He had a gypsy soul and never lived anywhere long, so I didn’t believe him. I was wrong. When he passed away last month, he did so at his home in Shallotte and was buried under a tree there.
