My Dad and I used to go to a Cowboys game every year. We both looked forward to this yearly pilgrimage, it was always the highlight of his and my fall. He was a giving, loving man, and I learned much about how to be a good man from him. I hope I can live up to the example he set. I miss him so.

The best brother-in-law a guy could have! Watching the Dallas Cowboys at my home will never be the same. Bob was one of the most patient and understanding men that I have ever known. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Brown family.

My Dad was the best dad in the whole world. He would do anything for you and cherished his family. I always felt from birth that he had my back no matter what he was doing or where he was. He was there for every important event and always put his children first. He was the kindest and most selfless person I have ever known. I will never be the same without my daddy in my life. I am so grateful that I was by his side during his final days. I love you Daddy!
