The article presents the views of Tony Brown, the son of Roger Brown, on the personal life of his father. He writes that even after two months since his father's death it is still impossible to ascertain his contributions to the cable industry, his family, and journalism. He says that it may take years to find the full extent of his influence. He says that though his mother organizes and plans for sports, school events and other extra-curricular activities, his father was the main pillar on which everything was held together.
