There aren’t really any words that describe the feelings one has when they lose a loved one or any words that help ease the sorrow. I cherish every moment I was able to spend with my grandma and will remember her fondly through those memories.

To all of the Brooks family, especially Vernon, Barry, Bonnie, Brenda, their spouses and the grandchildren, I want to express my deepest Christian sympathy in the passing of Lois! I know her passing leaves a great void in your lives. However, I also want to celebrate her life knowing that she was a believer and is now with her Savior and Lord face to face where there is no more suffering and no more pain. God is with you all!
