In Tribute and Celebration of my Brothers life...

Journal Entry: Wed May 7, 2008, 12:12 AM
This is still very painful so I'll be brief.
My brother Ronald D. Brown passed away April 28th.
www.11alive.com/news/health/st…


To say he was a great guy would be a gross understatement so Ill just say this,
My brother was the finest man I ever knew.

Thanks to everyone who have offered condolences and to those who have been faving and watching, I'm not ignoring you. This is a tough time and I'll get back into things soon, just need some time.

The Ronald D. Brown Memorial Scholarship has been established and will be awarded annually to a Morehouse College student. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to:

The Ronald D. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund
100 Auburn Avenue
Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Yeah, I know we all have to face it, but I don't think anyone is ever ready for it. I hurts in a way there's no relief for.
But my brother accomplished a lot in his life. I'm very proud of him and will always remember him.
...and I'm already old and senile...I'm serious.

remembering is the best way to show someone you really care about them.

and doing it while senile is an even bigger proof of love. ^^

My condolences my friend. I too lost two people that were very close to me in April. I'm still out of the game, but may we both find the strength to keep up the good fight.

I posted a death in the family edit in my last journal, but no specifics.

I see.

I know it can be rough. I lost both my dad and my wifes dad all within a span of 6 months.

Well, on a brighter note, got 9 Star Wars cards done, with only 97 more to go by June 19th. I think I can handle that.

That must have been hard. It's a kind of pain that feels like it will never get better.
Well done on the cards, Tod! Looks like you have a lot of work ahead, best of luck!
