To all the Brown family, Jack, Janet, Karen, Faith, in-laws and nephews and niece. We mourn the loss of friend, husband and son of our neighborhood. Mark was one of those kids who was so polite and caring to the neighbors. A comfort to his parents during the bad times. And a joy when times were good. He will be missed by all of this family. God Bless all of you. Mary Shaw and family

Jack, Janet, Karen and all of the Brown family.
Words can’t express it, emotions can’t fully show it.I’m very sorry for your tradgic loss of Mark. He was the “model” son and looked out for everyone before himself. Always had a smile for everyone and a helping hand. We will all miss him greatly. My prayers are with you all.

Mark - Dec 24, 2013

Jack and Janet, I can only imagine the loss your family is feeling for Mark. Mark and I stayed in contact over the years due to the fact we both work in flooring. He worked hard and was always fair. He was a good person and a good man and I’m glad I knew him. He is with the father now and will always remain in you hearts
My deepest condolences

Dear Faith and Christina,
Dee Dee, Zeke, Debbie, and Lannie has accepted my family as part of their own. Through them I have experienced such a mighty spirit that blankets this family. We have watched and enjoyed priceless moments with many of you. We thank you all for your love and goodness. Just like family shares in good times, we also grieve with you through the hard times. There is no doubt that many share in this loss. Each member of your family we have had the pleasure to meet has made an impression on us, as did Mark. I am here to tell you he took a piece of each of you with him, just as he leaves a piece of him with each on of you. I pray God blankets both your family and the Brown family with the endurance needed to await the joy unspeakable when each of us are called home and all the pieces are one. Stand firm on the word of God because he is the light in our darkest hours. God bless you all. We love you.

Nicole Stewart - Dec 23, 2013

My sweet Brown family. I heart is broken as is yours over Mark’s life being taken from us all so suddenly. The first time I met Mark at one of Grandma Moat’s birthday parties I knew I was a lucky person to be part of Brian’s family. Brian and I had so much fun with Mark and Faith when we made our visit for Uncle Jack’s 70th b-day party. I loved Mark’s smile and laugh and he will be madly missed by all those people that were fortunate enough to have Mark touch their lives in someway.
Love and praying for you all through this pain.

Joanne Lewis - Dec 23, 2013

Faith, I am so sorry to hear this news. I know it’s hard for you. Please know that you are loved and will be filled with God’s blessings more than you can imagine.
Our hearts and prayers are with you!
Bob and Joanne

Joy Viars - Dec 23, 2013

Janet, Jack, Karen, Faith, and Paige,
There are no words to express the sadness we feel and the shock of such an unfair sudden departure. Mark was my buddy (favorite nephew), a great son, a good husband and brother and an all around keeper/protector. None of us can understand why he left so suddenly except to say that he went home to be with his beloved big sister! He leaves a huge whole in the hearts of all and we will surely miss him! I love you!

Carolyn Lowe - Dec 23, 2013

Dear Janet, Jack, Karen, Paige, Faith and all of the family….words cannot express our sorrow at the loss of Mark ! I don’t have to even say what a great guy he always has been and what a solid rock he was in the Brown family; always there for everyone…a pillar of strength. We are all questioning why at so young of an age that he had to be taken from us. To know that he is in Heaven and we will see him again is of some comfort, but to have him gone from our midst now brings unbearable sorrow. I don’t have to tell you how much he was loved and respected by all… our deepest sympathies. We will honor his life with our wonderful memories of him.

Mark - Dec 23, 2013

Jack and Janet,,,, my heart goes out to you and the rest of the family. This came as quite a shock to me and my heart sinks every time I think about how this must be effecting your family. Marks life closely mirrored my own,(I’m also in the flooring business 20 yrs),and as you know, so did our childhood. I admired Mark for the hard work, dedication, and loyalty that he applied to every facet of his life. He was a good son, good father and a good man. He will be missed and I’m sure that he is with the father almighty now.
