May the God of Comfort bring your family peace during this difficult time
December 6, 2017
Well this is my 3rd time to try this without the tears. I would like to thank the Broocks family for allowing me to be apart of your parents life they were more to me and my mom than just someone we were caregivers for they became family and can honestly say that we love them. Now when Mr.Broocks was at the duplex he was such an out going person and making jokes kind of guy. Not to mention Grams didn't like it all the time we would get in trouble. But I learned a lot of history from this special man it was not always jokes. He talked to me a lot and Rebecca I want you to know how proud he was of you not only for going above and beyond working he was proud of your love for horses but most of all being there at anytime day or night for them. He as well knew you had a job even though many times he had me call you for him just to ask how work was going and how you felt that day. He was proud of his boys too. And oh how I remember when Mrs.Broocks and I would go visit at the nursing home he always asked about his Bubba dog and then would try to pull Mrs.Broocks to him for that kiss. And uncle John he thought so highly of you as his brother. I want you to know it was an honor to meet you and Nancy. Just know we will be with him again and I hope you all get to see the fun,loving and caring side I did. Love always and thanks again for sharing your+parents and+grandparents with Dorotht and I... I truely loved them as my own being I never had the opportunity to stop what I was doing to call my grandparents! Love,Tammy Silva May God bless you all and make everyday count because we aren't promised a tomorrow.
