Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Ramona and Family, I am so sorry for your loss of your father. May God Bless all of you at this time of healing.You and I graduated together. My maiden name was Carrier. Friends always, Rhonda Carrier Curlee

  2. God has called one of his beloved angels home. Truly one of the finest men I have ever known. It was my honor and privilege to have spent so much time fishing with him and my father. If I can do anything to help, please do not hesitate to call.

  3. I never met Mr. Brown, but my husband and I consider Dave to be one of our dearest friends. Dave has nothing but the highest regard for both of his parents and always speaks so fondly of them. Dave Brown is fine man, that is a real testament to the kind of father he had.You will all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you find comfort knowing that so many people care.

  4. Let me express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your father. Coping with the loss of loved one is very hard. The scriptures bring comfort that God is near to all those who are broken at heart (Psalm 34:18).

  5. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. I work with Ramona and, through the years, I've observed that she holds her mom and dad in the highest regard. That tells me what wonderful parents you've been to her! I know that Mr. Brown will be missed tremedously, but not forever! He is in God's hands and you will see him again!Sincerely,Dan Losey
