It seems like an eternity since you left us, Uncle Brooks. I have had plenty of time to sort through my feelings and still come up missing you terribly. You were a great role model and I do wish that all the traits that made you so special will live on in me. You could make me laugh until it hurt. I loved spending my summers in Jackson. It is a fond memory that I cherish.

God bless you, Uncle Brooks. You had more of an impact on my life than you will ever know. I do love you.

Brooks and my mother, Maurine McLemore Butler, were cousins. They were born in Medina, TN. I came to know Chancellor McLemore after I became a lawyer in 1967 in Jackson. He was so intelligent and judgelike and I always wanted to be able to have that type of presence. He was an inspiratio to me as a young lawyer and was always available to give advice. He did so much for the legal profession, especially when he and Judge Paul
R.Summers worked to get the judges retirement plan approved by the legislature. We all benefit from that now. I am also glad to learn of his military service. I have a large portrait of Chancellor McLemore hanging in my main courtroom in Jackson to remind me of his stature and ideals. When I remodeled the courtroom about 3 years ago, and had a grand opening, many came, and my special guest was Chancellor McLemore. He also came to my swearing in in 2003 and of the hundreds of people there, he was the only one recognized by name by the speaker. He has meant a lot to me over the years and I am saddened by his passing. My sympathies to "Nootie" and the family in their loss.

I had the pleasure of working with Judge McLemore at the Supreme Court Building. He is one of the finest gentlemen I have ever known. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I am sorry for your loss.

Dear Mrs. McLemore.. I do not know if you will remember me, but I certainly have fond childhood memories of you, your mother and father and Judge McLemore. My maiden name was Barbara Cooksey, and our family lived two houses away from your mother and daddy. When I was little, I would go to your house and crawl up and sit with your dad, who I called Meeksey. I remember going everyday after school. I remember the day that I came home and told my mother that I was going to Meeksey's and she said that I wouldn't be able to do that anymore. How devastated I was. I also remember the night that my sister and I were scalded by boiling water and our daddy was out of town working and you and Judge McLemore came and took us to the hospital for care. That was a lifetime ago, but the memory is still fresh. I have been away from Jackson for 42 years, but not away from the memory of the wonderful and kind people you both were. I am teary eyed not only at the knowledge of Judge McLemore's passing, but of yet another loss of a deep memory from my past. Even though many decades have passed, the sadness still remains. My best to you and God's blessings..

Sincerely
Barbara Cooksey Fox

We will miss you, Mr. Brooks. I didn't know you on the same level as my parents but your warmth, intelligence, servance, graciousness, ambition, love, and kindness will live on through those who knew you well. Thank you for filling my parents heart with wonderful memories and love. You made many impacts on people and even society, but nothing compares to the impression you left on our hearts.

Mr. Brooks will be missed by all who new him.

Thoughts and prayers are with you in this time
