To George, Nancy, Toby and John: My thoughts are with you and your mom. What an inspiration she was to me as both a passionate social worker as well as a woman with a sharp mind, a love for young people of all shapes and sizes, impeccable taste and one big heart. I am so glad I had the opportunity to share a small part of her life at Smith and in Houston, and through that to get to know all of you and your families. Liisa Honkalehto Rogers.

I was so sorry to hear of Maconda's passing. She was my therapist and friend for many years. She saw me through some of the darkest hours of my life. She will be greatly missed.

My most sincere condolences to Maconda's loving family and friends. I came to know of her through our organization, NEEB. If we each had even one-tenth of her beautiful spirit and her compassion, the world would be a better place. We have all lost one of humanities true blessings.

God Bless Dr. Brown for giving of herself and her resources unconditionally to the many Houston organizations that work to improve the quality of life for others.

Our organization has benefitted from the compassion that Dr. Brown demonstrated to the less fortunate and vulnerable. We feel privileged and honored that Dr. Brown assisted in the success of our organization.

Your family is in our thoughts and prayers and know that her spirit will live on in all the good...

Dear Lynn, George and Kelly,
Your St. Andrew's family is praying for you at this difficult time. I did not know Maconda but after reading about her life, I wish I had had the opportunity to. God bless you all.

I was saddened to hear of Maconda's passing, especially so soon after Isabel. Maconda's life was such a gift to all she touched. I send my love and prayers for comfort to her children and to Nancy.

One of Houston's heroes is gone, but Maconda O'Connor's legacy continues through the many people and organizations she touched. She was truly a remarkable woman and she will be missed.

   We will honor Maconda this week because we need to. But this is exactly the kind of attention that Maconda would have wished to avoid. A lot of people coming together to honor her. Sorry Maconda. This is for all us who have to go on without you. We hope you understand.
   Maconda Brown O'Connor was my friend. For almost twenty five years she encouraged and supported my work and me. Through ups and downs, triumphs and trials. Maconda could handle the truth better than most people. With...
