With sincere compassion and concern, the Majestic Family stands hand in hand with the relatives of Mr. James M. Brown as they prepare to celebrate his lasting legacy. Mr. Brown transitioned into eternal rest on Wednesday morning, July 25, 2018 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, NC.
An intimate and meaningful Service of Remembrance for Mr. Brown will take place on Sunday, July 29, 2018 at 3pm at First Baptist Church in Riegelwood, NC. Mr. Brown’s physical temple will lie in repose in the main sanctuary of the church from 1pm until 2:30pm for those who wish to visit with him prior to the formal life honoring service. During these moments, each participant and attendee can reflect on the fond memories of Mr. James and console his loving relatives as they say “farewell” to such a special part of their family.
Expressions of love through floral pieces should be made in the form of a lovely table arrangement, potted plant or a beautiful dish garden. These thoughtful pieces will encourage them and lighten their load in the difficult days that lie ahead.
