My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Mr. Brown. Phillip had been an employee of Virginia Roofing Corporation for many years when I came to work here in 1967. He was very knowledgeable and was the person that kept our equipment in good working order. If you showed him what you needed he could make it out of metal. Those of us that knew him valued his friendship. We will miss him!

Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

I am so sorry for your loss and am praying for the family, that God will give comfort in these trying times and for the days, weeks and months to come.

I am sorry for the loss of your loved one. the death of a loved one is very hurtful because Jehovah God never intended it [ GENESIS 2:17] because he loves us he has provided a means for us to be reunited with our loved ones again by means of the resurrection.[ JOHN 5;28,29] He is going to make the earth a paradise where there will be no death [REVELATIONS 21;] We know that this is going to come true because Jehovah has said it and he cannot lie [TITUS 1:2]. In the mean time you can be sure that your loved one is resting in the limitless of Jehovah.
