Sister Wives’ Janelle Brown shares heartbreaking tribute for son Garrison’s 26th birthday after his death last month

"Happy birthday sweetheart."

Last month, Sister Wives' alum Janelle Brown announced the death of her 25-year-old son, Garrison Brown.

On 6 March, Janelle wrote on her Instagram: “Kody [Garrison's father] and I are deeply saddened to announce the loss of our beautiful boy Robert Garrison Brown.

"He was a bright spot in the lives of all who knew him. His loss will leave such a big hole in our lives that it takes our breath away."

“We ask that you please respect our privacy and join us in honouring his memory."

A similar statement was posted to his father, Kody's, account as well.

The huge loss led to an outpouring of grief both from his family and fans of the TLC reality show.

Investigating police officers confirmed that Garrison's younger brother Gabriel, 22, discovered his body in the family home.

Authorities told People Magazine at the time: "On 03/05/2024 Flagstaff Police officers responded to a report of a death inside a home.

"At this time there is not any indication of foul play, and detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division are investigating."

And yesterday (10 April), Janelle shared a tribute to her son on what would have been his 26th birthday.

Janelle’s honorary post for Garrison is captioned: “Happy Birthday Sweetheart

“We are missing you terribly today

“It’s hard to believe you aren’t here anymore

“We talked a lot about you today and even went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner (your favorite place)

“I still feel you nearby sometimes. And I’m grateful we will see each other again when my journey is completed.”

A montage of photos of the happier times showed Garrison smiling while blowing out candles for his birthday, as well as a photograph of him as a baby with a birthday cake.

And many of her followers took to the comments to wish Garrison a happy birthday and express their condolences to Janelle.

One person commented: “Hugs, momma. Garrison’s smile was enough to show what kind of person he was. He is with you.”

Another person said: “Hugest hugs! I cannot even imagine. I don’t even personally know your family but have watched from the beginning when the kids were, well wee kids.

"My heart is hurting. Grief has no boundaries. Happy heavenly birthday to your son!”

While a third said: "Happy Birthday Garrison. hugs to you Janelle."

And a fourth wrote: "Happy Birthday Garrison. Everyone misses you."

Garrison made his first appearance on the show, which followed the polyamorous relationship between Kody, Janelle and his other wives when he was 12 years old back in 2010.

Garrison’s father, Kody, had previously spoken about his estrangement with his eldest son.

He said on an episode of Sister Wives: “I haven't been in touch with Gabriel and Garrison for quite a while.

"I think and hope that in time we'll just get over this and that we'll be safe being back around each other.

“Right now, there's not really an open door with Gabe and Garrison. They're not willing to engage me."
