  1. Dr. & Mrs. A. Eugene Wiggins :

    Billy was an exceptional young man. As his former Pastor; I found him a lover of God with a gentle spirit and a big heart. He fought a good fight and will be remembered as such. To his family; our prayers are with you and we pray with assurance that God with strengthen you in this season. Although we could not be with you physically, we are with you in spirit.

    My Uncle Billy loved his family and God. He will be sorely missed. I am so glad that he is now in GLORY no longer suffering with the limitations of his earthly vessel. I rejoice in his life.

  3. Dear Brown family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of William. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.

  4. I have fond memories of our childhood growing up in the south end of Columbus when our families lived across the street from each other, on Donaldson . There were lots of other relatives close by and many family gatherings. The “family business” was GM, where most of us worked at one time or another. Billy reached out and left me a voice message not so long ago, unfortunately we never got to talk directly. May God sustain all the many family and friends with great memories.
    Ken Scott
