I will meet you in the morning in the sweet by and by
And exchange the old cross for a crown
There will be no disappointments and nobody shall die
In that land when life's sun goeth down

A smile for all, a heart of gold
One of the finest this world could hold
Never selfish, always kind
These are the memories she leaves behind…

Brown Family, Our prayers and condolences to you. Mother Brown was like a Mother to me and I remember her words of wisdom, good food, fellowship and love. She was my 1st choir director at Alpha Baptist Church in Willingboro, NJ. She exemplified the love & God and was an example of a godly woman. She will be truly missed. May you feel the compassion and caring of a faithful heavenly Father who knows your every need and will continue to sustain you through this time of deepest sorrow. Love & Prayers, Audrey Butler

To the family of Miss Lillie,

My condolences to you, Mr. Brown, Jewell and all the Family, on the loss of your dear Lillie. Such a wonderful lady and friend. I know she will truly be missed. Such a wonderful time we had talking about our wonderful Heavenly Father. May you find comfort and peace in the word of God at this most difficult time. Jehovah God’s word tells us at Acts 24:15 that there is going to be a resurrection. We know that what He promises will come true. May we all look forward to seeing our loved ones again in the future. I am so very sorry.
