Harlon's (Big) son, Jody took his
death really hard. Jody stayed and
covered his Dad's coffin with a shovel
and tears. It was hard to stand there
and watch Jody but I was thinking how
much it took for this young man to show
his Dad this last respect.
Harlon got his nickname Big (he was the
biggest of the twins) from his sister
Fern 'Stidham' Brinkley. Big's twin's,
nickname is Lid he was the littlest
of the two boys.
