Alaskan Bush People reality star Rain Brown gets deep about her feelings on the season finale. The family Wolf Pack is still mourning the loss of patriarch Billy Brown.

Discovery Channel’s reality series, Alaskan Bush People centers around the Brown family. The late Billy Brown, his wife Ami Brown, and their seven grown children. Often referring to themselves as a “wolf pack” the family sometimes goes up to nine months without seeing an outsider.

Billy Brown tragically passed away on February 7 at his family home in Loomis, Washington. The 68-year-old and father of seven died after suffering a seizure.

The Youngest of the Wolf Pack Speaks Out

Rain Brown is the youngest member of the Wolf Pack. Her given name is “Merry Christmas Kathryn Raindrop Brown”. The 19-year-old has been forced to grow up fast throughout this past year providing a support system for her mother. When she was younger, Rain and her sister Snowbird were always playing with their dolls together. However, after she turned 18, Rain became fascinated with makeup and decided to become more independent. Eventually, she decided to build a home of her own on the family’s 436-acre North Star Ranch in Washington.

Prior to the Alaskan Bush People season finale, Rain took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the past season. She encouraged fans to tune in even if the episode will be a bit sad. Rain expressed it was important to her that her followers tuned in since filming the episode after the tragic loss of Billy Brown was so difficult.

She mentioned the episode came with some challenges, but it all worked out in the end. Check out Rain’s post below:

In the series, Billy Brown speaks with Rain about his dream to mine for gold on the mountain. Unfortunately, Billy wasn’t able to see his dream come true.

The loss of Billy Brown has hit the Wolf Pack hard, but together they will get through this.
