Mr. Brown was the epiphany of being quick to hear & slow to speak. A man of control because he was power under control. He was a man that imparted wisdom & mental strength into those that he came into contact with. I honored his kindness, honesty, & fairness even in tough situations.
He was a man of integrity & excellence as he put in great thought/effort in ALL that he did. I am proud that this is the leniage of my children.
I'm also heavy in my heart to know that I'll never be able to have another conversation with Coach Brown ever again. A gift removed from among us.
Condolences to All of the Brown Family.
Special condolences to Briean, Akeem, & Sona!
