October 08, 2012 "Dear Mrs. Brown,
I was in your classes at Uniondale High School. I learned so much from you that I continue to use to this day. Thank you for all that you taught me. I remember you with much kindness and gratitude.

My thoughts are prayers are with you and your family during this time of sadness. It is obvious that both you and your husband touched many lives and left a legacy to live on in others.
With love,
Laura Crowe (now Sanchez)" - Laura Crowe (Sanchez) (Uniondale, NY)

June 26, 2012 "All our sympathies to the Brown family. I will always be grateful to have known Wesley and Crystal briefly in our water exercise class at the Martin Luther King pool. Also it was also a privilege and an honor to have Lt. Commander Brown generously give his time to share his story with the public at the Wheaton Library a few years ago. It was lovely to see him encourage young people there who were interested in entering the Naval Academy and to have him share his stories with all of us. Wesley will always be in our hearts. What a very special person. Our caring sympathy goes out to you, Crystal and to all of your family." - Michelle Schuster (Silver Spring, MD)
