Growing up next door to Mr and Mrs Brooks has left me with lots of memories. They were always very kind to myself and my brothers. I used to watch Mrs Brooks sun bathing in her yard and think she was so elegant. Mr Brooks was very calm and loved his yard!! He took such care with it. Thank you for being such great people!!
