Remembering Garrison Brown: A Bright Soul Lost Too Soon

We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Garrison Brown, the beloved son of Kody and Janelle Brown. Garrison was a bright spot in the lives of all who knew him, and his loss has left a big hole in our hearts.

Garrison’s struggle with alcohol abuse and depression was known to his roommates, who described him as an “alcoholic” who battled his demons every day. However, they never anticipated that he would take such a tragic step.

Janelle, feeling regretful, expressed that she wished she had done more for her son. Looking back, she realized how important it was to treasure the precious moments they had together as a family. Last Christmas, they were able to gather all their children and capture beautiful memories in photographs. She is now extremely grateful for those pictures.

In the days leading up to his passing, Garrison sent text messages to his loved ones that revealed his inner pain. In one of these messages, he expressed his longing for the good times and his struggle to let go of the past. When Janelle discovered the message, she immediately reached out to Garrison, hoping for a conversation that could bring him comfort. Unfortunately, their conversation was brief, and Garrison stopped responding.

Worried for his well-being, Janelle contacted Garrison’s siblings, asking one of them to go and check on him. Tragically, when his brother arrived at Garrison’s home, it was already too late. Garrison had taken his own life.

The shocking discovery left everyone devastated. Garrison was found with a handgun, and his cause of death has been reported as suicide. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the Brown family during this incredibly difficult time.

It is moments like these that remind us how much we need to cherish the time spent with our loved ones. We often forget the value of a simple conversation or a shared experience, but these moments can have a profound impact on someone’s life.

Garrison’s passing also highlights the importance of mental health awareness and support. If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide, please reach out to a helpline or mental health professional. There is always someone who cares and wants to help.

Garrison’s final Instagram post, just six days before his passing, showed a picture of him holding a cat named Ms Buttons that he had recently adopted. In the caption, he shared his determination to save her from euthanasia, revealing his compassionate and caring nature.

Fans have been touched by Garrison’s story and have expressed their condolences on social media. Some have even asked for information about the shelter Garrison volunteered at, wanting to make donations in his honor.

As we mourn the loss of Garrison Brown, we must also remember him for the bright soul that he was. Let us honor his memory by cherishing our loved ones, being there for those who are struggling, and advocating for mental health awareness.
