My Sincere Sympathy to the Family,
We are never prepared for the loss of our loved one but Almighty God is always prepared to help us through our loss. May His promise of the resurrection begin the healing process in your heart and may His love surround you with the comfort only He can give. -(John 5:24,25; 2 Cor 1:3,4) Looking forward to the time when we will all meet again.

Sam Brown, Jr! a man I've known for pretty much all my life. Being a long time friend of my father, Sam watched me from a 7 year old child, grow through my teen years as my trainer in the trade of carpentry, to my adult life being a reliable teammate in providing excellent construction services to homeowners throughout NE Florida. I'm forever grateful for the sincere mentorship, and genuine friendship we shared. Rest In Peace Mr. Brown, we love you.
