    Just left the cemetary, where they laid pop in the ground at his final location. Rest in Peace Mr. Brown. Your spirit lives on as I am a witness to that. Thank you for everything that you have done for me and my family of whome you have only known a brief 5 years. You loved wholeheartedly and spoke with true passion for others. Your gifts of the spirit were many. Your committment, dedication and diligence was easy for anyone to see, even at 74 you were just as fearless and sturdy as you were at 34. You may have left this cold world, but your rays of sunshine and love still radiate out to keep our hearts warm and cozy. From not only listening to your stories a few times each, but empathetically getting fully eloped in them as they were told; it was fair to say you had a "special" or "different" life history, that many cannot relate to, but one that I got to know personally. I got to know him for the man he was outside of that spot light that seemed to follow him around to each meeting. Iron sharpens iron, would often get new edges over drinking coffee or driving to town to buy cigarettes for everyone. We created quite a unique bond over the years, one that was strong. Even up until your last days. When your business (BMW) started losing ground, you never batted an eye. Thats what I admired about you, you took everything in stride without stumbling or showing any slack up. it was like you didnt want to upset anybody that depended on you (especially your precious grandbaby Aubyn) So you did what you had to do tomake things flow. Standing firm in your word yet able to shake up anyone with your definite voice and piercing glance over looks. An act of reassurance that nothing could go wrong even in your weakest times you put your boots and nice shirt on and acted as if you hadnt lost a thing. One of the most caring, meticulous, sharp, big hearted, straightforward "to the point" man to ever walk this old trail. The path of the righteous. You embodied the Lion from The Wizard of Oz, as you had alot of courage. And that, in my opinion, is what caused you to be as high in the minds of others as you were. Please be with my mother and daughter now and forevermore by letting your spirit guide them along with God to a happy, helpful and peaceful life. Watch over our baby girl from heaven and keep her safe and in good arms. We love you Garth Brown! Rest easy
    You will always be remembered, Pawpaw

    With great Love, from - Aubyn Lynn, John Wayne, and Michelle Lynn (Gammy)
