  1. Aaliyah was a student in my QUEST program at Thomson Elementary School. I remember her as a smart, sweet, kind-hearted, and loving young lady. Aaliyah’s bright smile and hugs always brightened my day. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. What a blessing to have known this special little girl.

  2. Aaliyah was certainly a Princess of God. He used this child to teach us many things, and some of those things are: how to love unconditionally, to experience peace in time of storm, to praise and worship God while lying on a sick bed, and to be thankful for such as you have. What an awesome God to allow us to have this special little creation of His for eleven years. I am so grateful He allowed my mother– her great grandmother, Mrs Julia to be with her almost a year before her home-going. Mother loved this little Princess. And mother knew as an infant she was a gifted child. We will remember Princess Aaliyah Zariyana Brown always and we will continue to blessed with every thought of her.

  3. Princess Aaliyah Zariyana Brown,
    What a beautiful name for a precious child, now we know the reason why. She was God’s ”Little Princess” right from the beginning, and she was given a name fit for a princess. Princess Aaliyah Zariyana Brown, rest in peace where we all long to be, when our days on this earth shall cease. Uncle Jerry and I are grateful for the times we shared singing, praising, and praying together. Glory to our Lord God Almighty!
