Celebration of Life for Tiara Brown

Hello, I am Christopher Moore.  I am requesting assistance for the Celebration of Life and funeral service for Tiara Rose Brown on behalf of William and Carolyn Brown.  I know Will said to keep this about Tiara, but to know them and their heart is to know Tiara as well.  William came from wonderful parents that are missionaries and have traveled the world. Both Will and Carolyn have that same hunger for Jesus.  William recently moved back home from Caldwell, Idaho where he served as Chaplain to the first responders (fire & police) and the people in the community.  He did this on his own dime with little to now support from the community. It is hard to find any couple that has a heart for the hurting, broken or lost more than Will and Carolyn Brown 


About Tiara:  Tiara was a beautiful 9-year-old little girl.  She had been diagnosed with autism and according to the world was "low functioning".  She was an amazing active young girl who had so much love in her it oozed out.  Her smile was infectious and it couldn't help but put a smile on anyone's face who came in here presence.  She loved to dance and sing.  I could go on forever about how wonderful God had created Tiara.


Friday, February 16th 2018 at approximately 1PM Tiara began to have seizures. She was taken to Randall Children's hospital via ambulance.  Despite excellent medical care and a multitude of medications, the seizures persisted for twelve hours.  The seizures were very hard on her precious body.  She passed away peacefully Sunday, February 18th at 9PM in the loving arms of Mom and Dad. 


That weekend, she was surrounded by friends and family.  As Will's best friend and brother, I have seen an outpouring of love from so many, it brings me to tears.


The need:  Will and Carolyn did not come from money nor do they have much of it.  They survived on only what Will could bring in as a chaplain...what was excess and sometimes what was supposed to be on the table went to others in need.  Serving Tiara was a full-time job for Carolyn.  Unfortunately, Will and Carolyn's 1st son Benjamin went to be with Jesus ~eighteen years ago.  Benjamin Brown was buried at Lincoln Memorial in Portland, Oregon.  Carolyn's heart is that Tiara be buried with her brother.  On behalf of the family, we need your help.  Just to open the ground is nearly $8000 and that does not include services for Tiara.  To honor Will and Carolyn's humble request for their children to be buried together the total is $12K to $13K.  We need your help.  Please give out of the joy of your heart to bless my friends Will and Carolyn for their life of selfless giving and also to honor the life of Tiara Rose Brown.  Thank you in advance.
