Brown was a very intelligent and hard working classmate of the G'Boro Class of 1955. We , Bobby & Billy Ward and myself, also had lots of fun with him in our youth working on and riding the 'early' "Servicecycles" that had motors mounted onto bicycles. I'm saddened to learn of his death.

Nita and Family, Brown, Jr., was a fine friend to everyone! He was thoughtful, kind, and always anxious to help. He came from a great family in Siloam. Everyone loved Mrs. Lillie Mae and Mr. Brown. Maner sang in a "Quartet" and in the Church Choirs with Mr. Brown for many years. If there is anything that we can do to help, please do not hesitate to call upon us. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. With love, Maner, Marjorie and Family

I am so sorry for your loss. May "the God of all comfort" (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God's Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.
