When Alaskan Bush People star Billy Brown (69) passed away in February this year, the tragedy shook the family. Once the sorrow subsided, though, some of Brown’s kids, like his youngest daughter, Rain (18), noticed that they could still feel his presence. Over time, Rain welcomed this feeling and the notion that her father was still with her in spirit.
“He absolutely gives me signs from beyond,” Rain told Hollywood Life. “It makes me feel better knowing that he is always with me. It is very comforting.”
Rain isn’t the only Alaskan Bush People star to experience these “signs.” The youngest member of the “Wolf Pack” shared that her brothers and sisters, too, notice these signs on a daily basis.
“He comes through on the radio,” Rain explained. “It’s so strange because, even on the stations that don’t usually play this kind of music, I will turn on that station, or be flipping through the channels, you hear Stevie Ray on a station that does not play that kind of music. Or a song that will describe what is happening in my life.”
Rain shared that these moments always seem to happen at the exact moment when she’s thinking about her father.
“It is too strange to be coincidence.”
‘Alaskan Bush People’ Star Says Showing Billy’s Final Moments Brought ‘His Story to a Close’
Ahead of tonight’s season finale of Alaskan Bush People, Rain Brown reflected on how the show represented her father’s final moments and his legacy. Since Billy’s tragic passing, the family has worked hard to pay tribute to their patriarch in every way possible. Throughout the season, Rain and her siblings have worked to fulfill all of the dreams and aspirations that their father had not yet completed. This included some gold mining, horseback riding and, most importantly, keeping the family together through faith and independence.
“Dad loved his life and he loved living how we lived,” the Alaskan Bush People star shared. “When he died, we wanted to bring his story to a close that would honor him and we couldn’t think of a better way to do that than to show his final moments and the grieving process after. This is definitely what our father would have wanted for us to do and this is why we chose to handle it the way that we did.”
Rain shared that she wasn’t sure of the future of Alaskan Bush People, but as long as it’s on air, she’ll gladly be a part of it.
“This was our dad’s passion, so it became our passion,” Billy Brown’s youngest daughter said. “Doing the show is his legacy.”
