Dear Diane, Jennifer, Stephanie & Cody, There are no words to ease the unbearable pain and sadness of the loss of your husband and father; I will offer none.

My Sympathy to the Marsden Family:
Back in the early 60's, I was the babysitter for Daphne, Brooks and Lynn. I knew the family from our church. Since he was only 2 years younger than I was, I would let him stay up late, but he would go running upstairs to bed as soon as we heard the car pull into the driveway. I was so sorry to hear that he had passed away. Brooks was a lot of fun then and it sounds like his great personality stayed with him through the years. My sincere condolences.

Dear Diane and Family,
When I was dating my now wife 17 years ago Brooks had a couple of live lobsters flown into Quincy Illinois so that she and I might have a special evening together. Just because, that's the kind of man he was. You have our condolences. He will be missed and remembered by my family.

Dear Diane and Family,
My deepest sympathies. I worked with Brooks at Glenayre for a number of years beginning around 1991. Brooks was instrumental in helping me obtain my present job in Portland was 2001, I was working for Glenayre in Charlotte, NC, my mother was dying of cancer back in Maine. Brooks helped me get a job for one of our customers in Portland so that I could move my family back here. I'll never forget his help and will always be grateful. Brooks was a unique and gifted man, I'll miss him.
