Aloha Marian, It has been many years since I have been back to visit San Francisco. I have many fond memories of seeing both of you during the 1970s especially near Macys. Sincere condolences to you. With deepest Aloha, Linda

Dear Marian,
It was always a joy to see the "inseparable Brown Twins" strolling the streets of San Francisco. Sightings were frequent and everywhere from the Coffee Shop at the Fairmont Hotel on Sundays, Sherman Clay on Powell Street on Saturdays, I Magnin where you were trying on Easter Hats and drawing quite a crowd, the Financial District when you were both working in that area, the Nob Hill area, Union Square (Especially Uncle Vito's) and many more places in your beloved city. The Virgin Airlines ads as well as Greeting Card companies were so special and you did numerous other ads also. Thank you for consistently gladdening the hearts of all who saw and visited with you; myself included.

Kalamazoo's loss was definitely San Francisco's gain. San Francisco was so fortunate to be your chosen city.

My sincerest condolences to you, Marian. You can be certain that Vivian surrounds you with her protection and love.

My heart is broken for you both; as an identical twin myself, i could not imagine losing my beautiful twin! Marion, we think of you with love and are praying for Vivian.
January 17, 2013
I remember seeing you both at Tadich's Restaurant in the mid 90's. Thank you for your presence in the world.
January 17, 2013
So sorry for your loss, San Francisco's loss. I'll never forget the first time I saw you two on the street 10 years ago shortly after I arrived in the city. You both smiled warmly and said, "Hello." I turned to my friend and said, "Now I'm officially a San Franciscan."
January 17, 2013

January 16, 2013
Marian, I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of seeing you and your sister around San Francisco throughout the years. You both always had such cheery smiles, and took the time to wave and say hello. Rest in peace, Vivian.
January 16, 2013
My condolences to Ms. Brown on the great loss of her twin. Devestating at any age. My grandmother (born in 1926) adored reading about them and seeing photos of them when our relatives would travel. I cannot tell you why except she must have loved the fashions. God Bless.
January 15, 2013
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
January 15, 2013
Marion, I'm so sorry to hear about Vivian. But God is good. I worked with Vivian at Allstate and have met you too. San Francisco is not the same without Vivian. You two were a delightful presence to behold. Vivian was such a good natured person. May our God give you comfort and strength and let the memories keep you smiling.
January 15, 2013
Marian, So sorry for your loss. We have always watched for the two of you when in SF and were so thrilled to see you at your favorite table at Uncle Vito's just this Summer. You were so giving to your admirers. We know that your loss is great. We will always remember you as our favorite "icon".......Linda and Dave, Kaua'i, HI
January 14, 2013
Sorry for your loss. I'll always remember how you made me smile when I lived in Nob Hill 1991-96 and I'd see both of you walking up Powell.

Sorry about ur lost
January 14, 2013
Marian,
Remembering happier days when two bubbly spirits showed us all how to embrace life to the fullest. Many miles have separated us since Gateway church, but someday we will all meet again next to a crystal clear river that flows along the throne. Rest assured, your sister sleeps with many other members of Christ's family and someday will rise again.
Your brother in Christ, Kent

I saw these cuties walking around Union Square or Nob Hill almost every day when I worked on Montgomery Street in San Francisco in the '70s. At first I thought I was seeing double. I loved when they wore matching polka dot dresses. They always
were groomed & dressed impeccably & were a fixture of the City. I'm sorry to hear to hear of Vivan's death. I send blessings to
Marian.
January 14, 2013
May Vivian fond memories stay you for a life time.May the God of comfort and Love be with her family.Psalms90:10 says Vivian had what God's word say a special mightiness.

much.

So sorry for your loss!!!!!!
January 13, 2013
Marian, our paths crossed many, many times although you and Vivian met so many people you wouldn't remember me individually. I worked at BofA in the financial district and would often run into you both during lunch. I introduced you to several of my friends and without exception every one agreed that you and your lovely sister were true San Francisco icons! Your warmth, friendship, and overall classiness were something to admire as both of you trotted through the city streets--enjoying the looks and stares and smiles from others. God bless you, Marian and God protect your lovely sister.
January 13, 2013
I will always have fond memories of both the twins. Together they made the world a better place and always made you smile.
God bless you Vivian
January 13, 2013
What a joy it was to meet Vivian and Marian at Uncle Vito's last year. We enjoyed a glass or two of Merlot together and laughed the entire evening. The Brown sisters will always be a San Francisco treasure.
January 13, 2013
To Marian Brown,
I can't imagine the level of pain you
you're are feeling at this time. You've been with your sister for 85yrs doing everything together and still dress alike. I'm also have twin sister I know the bond you'll had.

I offer you my most deepest sympathy and pray that God will keep and strengthen you during these rough days ahead. Be Bless
January 13, 2013

January 13, 2013
Marian, I too an a twin who grew up in teh bay area and worked for many years at the Fairmont Hotel and saw your sister and you often. My twin sister also just passed away just about a month ago. I truly feel your pain. But as with my sister she is in a happy place. My thoughts are with you!
January 13, 2013
Recently recalling several business trips to San Francisco in the early 80's, my husband and I delighted in the memory of the two elegantly dressed twins who were such Ambassadors for the beautiful city of San Francisco. Their gracious smiles and quiet energy cheered weary sightseers and locals alike. I know the angels have guided you home, Miss Vivian. Eva Robinson, Columbus, GA

January 13, 2013
I lived in San Francisco for several years and always admired you both for your spirit, classiness, and delightful personalities. San Francisco will not be the same. My deepest sympathies.
January 13, 2013
I lived in San Francisco from 1979 to 1992 and always treasured seeing you both walking together in the city. A wonderful photo of you two has hung in my studio for the last 20 years, such an icon of all my wonderful years in that great city. My sincere sympathies.
January 13, 2013
Every time I would see the Twins wearing those beautiful outfits and smiles on their faces, a smile would come upon my face and heart. God Bless the family!

January 13, 2013
I lived In SF from 1974-77 and I worked at an Art Gallery three blocks up from the Fremont. I remember stopping to exchange greetings with the two gallant ladies. They were both friendly and charming. SF has lost a true icon. My sincerest regards to the surviving twin sister and their family.

January 13, 2013
Living in Alabama I was not familiar with the twins, but I smiled, when I say her picture this morning, I have missed out, as I'm sure many people have smiled through the years, when encountered by her and her sister. What a glorious smiles on the faces of these two ladies. You can just see the happiest and fun radiating from them. So sorry for the familes loss, but heaven is graced by the sunshine of that smile today..

We will continue to pray for you Marian in the hopes you can find peace with your sisters passing. May God bless you and you family and friends in this time of sorrow. Vivian will always be sitting having that wine and looking out that window with you.
January 13, 2013
I had the pleasure of seeing these lovely ladies on a trip to San Francisco a number of years ago. I send my condolences.
January 13, 2013
As a San Francisco resident, seeing the two of you come walking down the street was like seeing a shooting star... unexpected, dazzling, and gone too soon. Rest in peace, Vivian. You were more important and loved than you ever imagined you could be... by the people of San Francisco and the world. Miss Marian, our hearts hurt along with yours. Find strength in knowing how loved you are.
January 13, 2013
A fond memory of SF for this New Englander. Both twins spread love and joy with those broad smiles. A loss for all. Condolences

I remember seeing the twins in San Francisco when I was 25 years old outside of Church Street Station. They looked like they belonged at Union Square. Lovely ladies . My condolences
to the family.
January 13, 2013
Marian,
I and my niece (who is also an identical twin) ran into you and your lovely sister Vivian in front of the St. Francis Hotel a little over a year ago. You had such kind words for my niece and told her to always take good care of her sister. Thanks to both of you for always exemplifying kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit. San Francisco lost a dear lady in Vivian, but please know that the rest of us in town are your family too. Thanks so much for the joy you and Vivian brought to us all these years.
January 13, 2013
God bless both of the twins. My wife and I saw them for the first time a year ago on a trip from our home in Portland Maine. They represented the best of San Francisco with a quiet dignity.
January 13, 2013
God bless Vivian and her sister and all the family. The world needs more good people like the Brown Sisters. Super nice lady's.
January 13, 2013
Mariam, my prayers and thoughts are for you. You and Vivian made me smile each time I saw you together. We've exchanged many waives and smiles over the years. You are both in my heart.
