Ryder Allen Brooks was born 9:33 a.m. Friday, March 8, 2013. He granted his family our wish to have some time of love, joy and affection with him before he returned to God at 10:36 a.m. In that short time, Ryder knew only love, having been baptized by his pastors and cuddled by his family. How quietly he tiptoed into our world, only a moment he stayed, but what an impact his footprints have left on our heart. He is survived by his loving parents, Scott and Erin Brooks; grandparents, Barry and Jennifer Brooks, and David and Marleen DeLauder; and great-grandfather Roy "Pop" Collins.
