Angela King, May 15, 2019 Mr. Brown, We were so sorry to hear of your passing. You have always been the kindest most friendly neighbor. I will never forget the time Adrian was outside peeing on my car tire and you were across the street cracking up telling me he was a typical boy. The neighborhood will surely miss your friendly face. Sending peace to your family.-The Rodriguez Family Christina, May 15, 2019 Dear Brown Family, My heart breaks for your loss. I pray for strength and faith to help and guide you. David was an amazing man and would often come visit me when I was on campus. His laugh was contagious and he always had a soulful message. I could be having a challenging day and just his presence/words would energize me. He had such a calming and loving nature; He will be missed deeply and forever be etched in my memory. With many prayers for David, his family, and all those he touched. Much love and admiration,
Laurel Watson, May 15, 2019 My prayers go out to you the family. David is one of the sweetest persons I know. His Love of God showed through his kind heart. I'm thankful to have known him. Deborah McGowen, May 14, 2019 Brown Family, I want you to know that I have never met a more Godly man than David Brown. I had the pleasure of seeing him off & on at Central office & Valley Creek Elementary. I always called him Pastor Brown because you always felt the love he had for the Lord when talking to him. Besides loving the Lord, he really loved his family. He talked a lot about his sweet wife & the book she was writing. I retired from MCKinney ISD last year & he dropped by the school to say goodbye. I told him that I would see him again one day in heaven & he said the same. I know he touched a lot of lives while on earth & I know he will still be touching lives while in heaven. I am truly sorry for your loss,
CHERYL CARTER, May 14, 2019 Our thoughts and Prayers are with The Brown And Holley families. Prayers for you all! Brown will be missed tremedously!

Linda Jones, May 14, 2019 Mr. Brown came to our school often and always stopped to say hello. His words of encouragement and steadfast faith always made my day a little brighter. He will be missed. He had a beautiful family and they will be in my prayers. Debbie Snyder, May 14, 2019 Mr. Brown, I'm sorry you left us so soon, you had a good heart and always had a smile on your face. Your family is in my thoughts though, I know they will miss you, but I also know that they will continue to celebrate your life wherever life takes them. Rest in Peace Mr Brown, know that you are loved and respected on this planet with warm regards,
