Will Brown
September 03, 1996 - June 25, 2018

My deepest sympathy is with the Brown family. May the love of family and friends as well as the words at “1 Thessalonians 4:14” and “2 Corinthians 1:3” help you get through this most difficult times.

It saddened me greatly to read about Will's passing. He was only a year older than I am. May God's word bring you comfort in this very difficult time. "Throw your burden on Jehovah, And he will sustain you."- Psalm 55:22

My sincere condolences to the family, no doubt this is a difficult time to go through. The Bible really comforts us because it gives us hope. At 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verse 26 death will soon be gone which means that losing our loved will be a thing in the past. As far as what will happen to the loved ones who already are asleep in death,please read Acts 24:15.

Will you should have been one of my kids because you were at my house enough to be called mine. You were a funny kid (well to me a kid) you were always smiling and laughing. At times a pain but I still loved you. Please tell Willie we miss and love him as we do you. Please watch over my boys. Fly high!!!

May the friends and family of Mr. Brown find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

4 months ago I first saw Will, it was at my cousin Willies funeral. I didn’t talk to him then but we did conversate at my aunt Chrissy’s house and there we formed a bond. He took my cousins place in my eyes. He cheered all of us up, put a smile on all of our faces.. Me and Will made so many plans but they never fell into place because of the lack of transportation. The night he passed, he sent me a picture of himself smiling with arms open wide like he didn’t have a care in the world. Even though I only knew him for four months he saved my life many times. I wish I could turn back time just so I could save his. I love you Will And I love all of his family even if we’ve never even laid eyes on each other. Please everyone celebrating Wills life, be safe.

Ray Smith, Ellabell, Ga

There is never an easy or right thing to say to comfort the family. We are so sorry for the heartbreaking loss you all are facing. I never got to meet him in person but he seemed to be fun loving, caring and very loved by all who knew him. You are in our prayers...the only thing that will comfort you at this time.
