I had the privilege of Bishop Ralph Brown being my Pastor while I lived in Florida. Twenty nine years ago to the date of his passing, he walked me down the aisle and gave me away on my Wedding Day!!

He was one of the few great men who walked this Earth. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to share.

Sad to see another one of the Warriors of the Faith pass on, but Great is his reward when he meets our Savior face to face. Bishop Brown stood firm in the faith of preaching Jesus Christ, One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. Our love and prayers are with Sis. Brown, Bro. Regan and all the family and friends who loved him very much. May God give comfort and strength in the days ahead.

My father in law was the most kind hearted, caring, gentle and loving man. Never a harsh word or judgemental toward anyone. I will always remeber the love he has shown my family and we will all miss him dearly.
My deepest condolences go out to his wife, children and grandchildren. Love and prayers for all of you.
