Dear Mr. Brookman and family,
I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Mrs. Brookman was always so sweet and always stopped to chat while visiting her Mom at Mennowood. Her kindness will always be remembered. May our LORD hold you all close to HIS heart during this very difficult time and give you strength for the days ahead.

Dear Mike, Adam, & Mark, and family, you're mother was such a sweetheart, and I am so happy I had the privilege of growing up in her presence. One of many of her kind gestures was "B.J.'s Gate."
