Growing up in Reynolds Georgia in the 1960's, Bruce Goddard had an unique perspective on life.  He was surrounded, nurtured and impacted by a close knit community of people who cared about him and gave him the foundation he would build upon to find his purpose in life.  Being the local funeral director, he would later conduct the funerals for many of the people who so influenced him as a child.

Because of his occupation, Bruce built enduring relationships and was impacted by people from all walks of life in this small rural town.  In The Legacy of Eulan Brown, Bruce looks at life lessons he learned from an unsuspecting Reynolds man who sold Grit newspapers to make a living.  He marvelously illustrates the lessons by conveying touching, heartwarming and sometimes humorous stories of people he has known all his life as well as others he has gone out of his way to meet along the way.

Jimmy Valvano, the late North Carolina State basketball coach said, "to me, there are three things we all should do everyday.  Number one is laugh. Number two is think.  And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy.  But think about it.  If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day.  You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special."

In The Legacy of Eulan Brown, Bruce Goddard will cause you to laugh, think and cry.  When you're done, you will realize you are holding something very special.
