Not sure what to say?

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)

Cmdr. Brown,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice for our Country when you served in the USN. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

We miss you.

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. ...

We are so thankful for the priviledge of having known Commander Wesley Brown...an inspiring individual for all Americans. Rest in Peace.

Mrs.Brown and Family,
I read of LCDR Wesley Brown's recent death and wish to send my sympathy to you on this loss. But what a legacy he has left behind for all of those who face the daily struggles and blows that life sometimes holds. He was truly a hero for all times.

I want to thank him for serving his country even though he always had obsticals to hurdle over because of the color of his skin. To keep us SAFE AND FREE, he is a HERO to many. May he R.I.P -|-
