Brown, Jr, James Brown (Joan), Mickey Brown, Rickey Brown (Brenda), and Joseph "Dukie" Brown (Mary); numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; and honorary families, Tan, Situ and Xie.

I am saddened by the passing of my good friend and fellow Manresa Retreatant, Captain Mo Brown. I know he is with our God who created him and loves him more than we can know or experience.

I am sorry I was not able to attend the memorial and Mass, but I have been praying for Captain Mo and his loving family this morning.

Captain Mo is a beloved member of Manresa Retreat Group 10-A and will always be remembered by the men of the group.

Captain Mo, please now pray for me.
