    My hero on horse back I always bragged about my cousin Lamar who road a horse at the prison and no one tried to escape cause they knew he was a crack shot and they'd rather live than leave in a box.
    Say hello to the rest of the Brantley clan for those of us who have to stay here. Love ya Cuz

    It's been a long time since I have seen Lamar, but all of these years later, I remember how much fun he was. He was always laughing and joking. My thoughts and prayers are with the family on the loss of your loved one.
