Denita and family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. If we can assist in any way please let us know. In May 2003, we became neighbors and I must say it was a real blessing because I became a part of the family. To me, Mr. Brown is my brother and he will be missed. He was always there to lend a helping hand and never wanted anything in return. I/we "Susie and Sis/Hattie" thank God that we had an opportunity to share a small part of this great man's life. Rest in peace our brother.
