Leo Frances Brown was a small surprise that excited everyone. We were very much anticipating the arrival of our new bundle of joy. Very unexpectedly and half way to the due date, an angel called him home on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 in Pierre, SD. He was a blessing to his mommy and daddy. They enjoyed every movement that he made, the sound of his heartbeat, and making plans for the day they could take him home.

Awaiting him in Heaven are his angel baby sibling, maternal Grandpa George, Aunt Sarah and Uncle Danny, his paternal Great Grandpa William and Great Uncle Anthonie

Mourning his departure to Heaven are Mommy Ann Matucha, Daddy Devar Brown, Sisters Lorelei, Lilia and Logen and brother Lliam Brown, Grandma Mary Matucha, Grandpa and Grandma Vince and Thomaseane Brown; Uncle George, Aunt Devon and Gracie; Aunt Kristina, Uncle Shawn, Chris, Dani, and Katie; Aunt Amy, Uncle Toby and JD; Aunt Erin; Aunt Lorna, Uncle Andy , Maggie and Lysa; Uncle Dwan Brown, Uncle Vince Brown Jr., Aunt Raven Brown, Aunt Hailey Brown, Aunt Maria Aiden and Aunt Felicity Brown.
