Janelle Brown admitted she’s having a difficult time with the loss of her son, Garrison Brown, who died by suicide earlier this month. 

Brown, the son of Janelle and Kody Brown from the TLC reality show “Sister Wives,” died at his home in Arizona on March 5. He was 25.

“It’s been hard to get my brain to work properly again,” Janelle wrote on Instagram. “I am so grateful for the out pouring of love and support I’ve received these last three weeks. The support has been overwhelming. I am honored.”

Janelle noted that her son received a special recognition during the memorial. “Garrison was honored by family members and by his National Guard Unit last Sunday at a celebration of life ceremony,” she wrote.

“Sister Wives” first aired in 2010 and documented the Brown family as they navigated their plural family lifestyle. The Browns initially lived in Utah – which, much like the United States, has strict laws prohibiting bigamy in its Mormon-heavy state – but fled to Nevada to begin a new life.

Kody had four wives: Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, and a total of 18 children. Christine and Kody separated two years ago, and she has since re-married. Janelle and Kody separated in December 2022.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints abandoned polygamy in 1890 and strictly prohibits it today. The Browns consider themselves to be fundamentalist Mormons.
