Dear Brown family, My heart goes out to you at this time. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a great man. I am just sorry I did not get to see him much lately. I do remember going to the farm to see Aunt Mae and Uncle Brownie being out in the barn or the fields or with the cows. I also saw him a lot when he worked at the temple in Billings. It was so fun to go there and every time I saw he, he recognized me right away. I thought maybe his memory would not be there but it was with the quiet, sweet smile I saw every time. He remember Roger every time Roger went also. Please know that my prayers are for your family at this time. It is hard to say goodbye when they need to go on and join their family on the other side, but you will want to see them and hear them talk a little more. Love to all of you. God bless you all. Cheryl

Dear Jay, Linda, Lane and Karen,
I am so sorry for the loss if your Dad. I have such fond memories of time spent at the farm and seeing Uncle Brownie and Aunt Mae. He was always so kind to everyone. My Mom and Dad often spoke of how much they loved him. I can only only imagine the celebration in Heaven when he was reunited with Aunt Mae and all the loved ones who have gone before him! To know that he and your Mom are together again brings a smile to my face. I could see how very much he loved her every time he looked at her and his eyes twinkled. I wish I could be with you all to celebrate his life. Please know that I am there in spirit and my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I love you and pray our Heavenly Father will bless you all and help your hearts heal. Love, Maureen.

Dear Brown Family,
What a wonderful life your father lived; and left a legacy for his posterity. I am sorry for your loss. I remember working in the fields helping load beets for the factory with your dad on our farm many decades ago. Jay and I hauled hay on the old green Chevy truck with Lane driving until we threw a water snake into the front seat.
Linda, I enjoyed getting to know you better when Keith and you moved to Casper. Lane I didn't know you well since I was almost eight years ahead of you in school. You should be proud of your father, as he left for you a great example and legacy.
Karen you were just four years old when Jay and I graduated from high school. I remember well you being in our ward in Billings with a young family in the early seventies.
In our pre-teen years Brownie took Jay and I ( in the green truck) over to Sheridan to pick up a bottler to put in the Brown's Dairy for processing.
Enough about old times; I loved your dad ( my first cousin) as a second father. I enjoyed a good visit with your dad less than 3 years ago while up for my class reunion.
You all have been in my prayers and I pray you feel the healing power of our Savior, and wish all of you the best. Love, Gurn

Dear Brown Family,

I was saddened to learn of the passing of your father. I was impressed by his lifetime of service in the Church and particularly his dedication to family history. When I was in high school I wrote an essay about my great grandfather, Wyo, and I asked Brownie if he would share memories of his brother with me. Brownie sent me the nicest letter back with wonderful details of their childhood. I will always think fondly of him. God bless you all until we are reunited with our loved ones who have passed on.
