    Chris and family, we are very sorry to hear of your loss. LuAnn was a very special person and will be missed by everyone who knew her.

    May the family find comfort in loving memories, and in knowing that God is “close to those that are broken at heart; and he saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) Our loving Creator, Jehovah God, has promised to soon “swallow up death forever…and wipe the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) With deepest sympathy.

    Lots of childhood memories with the Brown family! Our parents getting together to play cards and they always brought us “kids” along! A great memory I have of LuAnn is watching her and Robin dance to “Jungle Love” in their room! My sister and I were in “awe” of the Brown sisters’ dancing abilities! Such a fun and loving family! LuAnn was so pretty and I looked up to her! Such a beautiful human being…

  • Melony Herman Posted November 11, 2014 12:00 am

    I was very sorry to read of LuAnn’s passing. I remember her well form our Mutual days. She was always helpful, smiling and alot of fun. I pray that you all will find comfort in the arms of the Lord during this difficult time.

    Dear Family and Friends,

    I’m sorry for your loss. I just wanted to leave you with an encouraging scripture that has helped me deal with the loss of a loved one. It is found in the Bible Book of Acts 24:15 and it reads, “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”

    For more encouraging scriptures please visit JW.ORG.

    Love you Luann

    Your brown family
