To the family of Gary Brown, I would love to express my gratitude to you for sharing such a fine son, brother, father, uncle and friend to so many. I would never be able to say enough great things to show my appreciation for such a fantastic young man. My deepest condolences to your family for your loss.
As I write this, my heart is heavy, my eyes burn with tears and I miss you Gary!
We have so much history as young juveniles and adults. We played video games, music (especially Vybz Kartel), tackle football (without helmets, lol), tried skateboarding but I couldn’t do it a good as you did. Your life left me nothing but sweet memories and happiness. I’m smiling now and I hope you are too.
While heaven has gained a Angel of a man, I can say I’m blessed to have spent time with one of heavens finest. Your journey has only begun, I feel your energy and spirit knowing you are always watching over us as the PROTECTOR you were. Rest in Power Gary.

Father God keep the family, uphold them, strengthen them, protect them; for you God alone knows all. Thank you Father for the life of Gary, a life of good, kindness, family oriented and most of all his walk with God.
Romans 14:8, If we live, it’s to honor the Lord; and, if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to God. We thank you Jesus, for it’s in His name, we pray. Amen.
John 14:1-3, Let not your heart be troubled, believe in God, believe also in me. In my Fathers house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you, and, when I go, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I AM, you may be also.
