Michael Brown was a good hearted person, and I will
miss him very much. He was diffenently one of a kind. I spent a year with
him in Iraq as his room mate and fellow peer. One of the best memories
I have of him is when he had hurt his back and we had to put up an
antnenna. I would ask him for something and he could barely bend over to
pick anything up. It took him at least 5 minutes just to pick up a
hammer. It was one of the funniest things I ever saw. I was there every time
he was promoted, and had the great oppertunity to promote him to SPC.
He was one of the funniest and smartest people I knew. Like I said he
was one of a kind and he well always have a place in my heart. I have
alot of memories of Michael, and he will be missed very much.

Micheal and my family were very close growing up and it
was such a great tragity when we found out he had passed. Our hearts
ached for the loss of him and his family because a great loss it was.
My twin brother (Levi Dean Allender) had attended williamsburg learning
center with micheal and they became friends. They were very close. He
used to come over and stay the night all the time. Was always nice to
my sister (Jennifer Lorene Allender) and i. I remember the first time he
stayed the night my mom (Carol Dean Allender) had to stop off at
walmart and we all stayed in the car. Micheal stole my bucket hat that i was
wearing and took off all through the parking lot. He was so fun to be
around. I remember he would call and leave funny messages on our
answering machine and leave long messages of him laughing like spongebob
squarepants. He was good at that. He also used to pretend to hit on my mom
and that was really funnny too. Another time he stayed the night Levi
and Micheal were going to sleep in the tent in the yard. Micheal knew
how to push levi's buttons and thought it was funny. Well Levi wound up
chaseing him around the yard with a hammer. No one was hurt but it !
was funny. My brother would always fall asleep early so Micheal and i
would stay up all hrs. of the night talking about anything and
everything. Micheal and i were close as well we had a certian thing that no one
else had.
Micheal and i tried dating a few times but decided it was best to
remain friends so we wouldnt jepordise what we already had. He was a very
sweet guy. He would stay up all hours of the night making mixed tapes for
me. He always would call and check up on how i was doing and help me
with any problems i had.
I didnt have such great tearms with him around the time he had passed.
It sucks so bad knowing that. Its all because he was caught between  me
and my ex spouse. I dont have hard feelings twards him for it, its not
his fault i just wish i could've told him all of how i felt about him
before it became to late. I was told by one of his good friends that he
still had asked about me and my family so that must mean he still
cared. That is a settleing feeling but still dont cut it all.
I just wanted him to know that the Allender family misses him greatly
and loved him like he was a part of our family. Forever in our hearts he
will always be!

In Honor Of Michael Dean Brown
Micheal Dean Brown- Very loving, caring person. He
could make anyone laugh. You could never stay mad at him. Trust me!
Almost everyone loved Michael. He loved to play jokes on everyone.
Myself personally.. got a texting joke from him. He told me that his name
was Jake. Lol. Remeber Brianna. (Pee-wee) Michael was one of the
funniest people I have ever met. Justin and Michael used to pick on Brianna
Jordan Ottaway, Breanna Denis Parsons, and Kendra Coleen Kaci Parsons
(me).
The last time I myself saw Michael was the night of rockfest! Haa. He
was so drunk!
He named my dog. Well his real name is Buddy, but Michael on the other
hand loved to call him Tri-Pod. Lol Good times Micheal. Well Buddy
(Tri-Pod) loved to walk around with all the gang. Well I was going over to
Brianna's house and then I noticed that everyone was outside. Michael,
Justin, Jamie, Shelbi, Matt, and Brianna. They were all so drunk. They
had went to McDonalds. They bought like 6453164645 millions cheese
burgers I swear! Well anyway back to my story.. Buddy walks around the
corner and all of a sudden you hear Micheal yell "Hey! Its Tri-Pod! Now
where is Tiny?!" Oh yeah Michael called me Tiny. Lol. And I walk around
the corner and he says... "Oh there you are!" He was drunk let me add
again. Well I got up to the porch and he stands up and says "Man I just
ate 6 double cheese burgers from McDonalds, and let me tell you they were
goooooood!" and he did this thing with his hands on his stomach and
like almost jumped up and down. lol. It was so funny. I will never
ever forget that Michael.
Brianna Jordan Ottaway and Michael Dean Brown shared something very
speacial. They loved each other. I know they did. I always thought that
Michael and Brianna were going to married. They would of it Michael
haden't of ________ well you know, went to visit God for awhile.
