Our second born son Rob (Robert Jon Brown) had his 44th birthday this past Wednesday, April 25th. He was born deep in the heart of Texas (Fort Worth) and has a heart as big as Texas. We wanted to share some of the special life of this outstanding young man with all of you. We could not ask for finer son, who loves us, prays for us and cares about our lives.

Rob is an incredible son, husband, father, brother, nephew, brother-in-law and friend. He is always so willing to help anyone out--whether it be family, friends or his church (where he is very involved in so many aspects of his church family)  He loves the Lord deeply and serves wherever he is asked. Plus in his civic activities--he is always available to serve--he has a true servant's heart.

At a very young age, probably around 12, Rob and another friend talked about becoming attorneys and they both fulfilled that dream, after hours of hard work and years of education. He is a man of integrity, truth, honesty, loyalty and the list goes on and on. His work ethics are so Christ centered--do all things as unto the Lord.  

Rob is a father extraordinaire--he spends time with his daughters, Elizabeth and Emery--fixing their breakfasts at home, then Saturday morning breakfasts going out as well. He gives 100% with his presence and love to all the activities they are involved in and is a major encourager in their lives. They love their daddy. He is a very special husband, loving Kara, his wife, with all his heart and supporting her with her work and dreams--they are high school sweethearts.  

As a friend, you could not ask for a better one--he has friends through the years, who still keep touch and try to get together a couple of times a year. He is a faithful, caring and encouraging friend. Always there with a listening ear and a helping hand. Even has an annual golf "test of the time" with three friends--an annual event and very competitive--all in fun but then again???? Everyone likes to win, right, Rob?

Hard to sum up 44 years of life on one page, these are just a few words for a very special man, our son, Robert Jon Brown. (Or better known to his grandmother, Memo, who went to be with the Lord, on February 5th this year, at the age of 97, as her "Sugar Frosted Flakes") He will always be Memo's "Sugar Frosted Flakes"!!! Probably the way she will introduce him when we all get to heaven.

We love you Rob and are blessed beyond words to call you son. You have enriched our lives more than you can know and we are so proud of you. Your tender, compassion spirit blesses us as your parents. Our heart's love and deepest prayers, Dad and Mom

**I had written most of this on his actual birthday, but put in my drafts file and failed to post it--so had to redo some of it** Sorry, Rob, I guess I need Emery to come and help me find my "memory brain", as she calls it. She is always helping me find it again. **

  1. What a wonderful post about you Rob. Wish I knew him, however, I know his parents and know for sure where he got those wonderful traits of his. Happy Belated Birthday, Rob.
    Isn't it wonderful how we have our blogs to give a tip o' the hat to our loved ones. If you have a minute hop over to my blog. I have featured Daren's wonderful wife today.
    Hugs to my dear, dear friend,
