Not sure what to say?

I just saw a commercial for Blues Travelers and it made me think of Brooks. I googled and am so sad to come across this notice. Brooks and I worked together for many years back in the 80s and 90s. He was like a brother to me....even having Thanksgiving it's my family in Vegas when they moved out there. Brooks and Cathy had an amazing love, were amazing friends and the kindest people I know. May they Rest In Peace together. God Speed.

It was my sincere pleasure to call Brooks my friend and co-worker. He had a great sense of humor and was a thoughtful and kind man. I will miss working with him. I know he is with Kathy and they are both happy to be together again.

We began as co-workers years back... We became great friends. Brooks was beyond nice...He was a caring human being. When he saw a person having a bad day he would stop by and tell joke or say something completely off the wall.
Brooks I will miss you a ton. I will miss the chats, the jokes, the laughter...But most of all I will miss your friendship. My prayer is that you and Kathy are with each other again.

God bless you my friend!

I was shocked and saddened to hear about Brooks. I am so sorry for your loss. May Brooks rest in peace.

What can I say that hasn't already been said. I only knew him for a short time, but Brooks made an overwhelmingly positive mark on me. He was one of the nicest, most genuine human beings I've ever met. No one who knew him ever had a single bad thing to say about him. He was patient and kind and friendly to everyone. He had the rarest of qualities in making you feel comfortable the instant you met him. I will miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his family and friends....

I was so very saddened to hear the news about Brooks. He was such a nice guy! Every time he visited our office he was always so pleasant. He had a smile for everyone. I would like to extend my most heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.

Brooks was a great man. Always did his best to aid in whatever way he could. He is missed..

To my dearest friends Shirley and Rolla and Deanna and Glenn,
I cannot imagine the feeling you are going through. I guess God has plans that are really hard to understand. Always remember I love you guys. Praying for you. Brooks was a very special person (my son's big buddy when he was little} Loved him!

Dear Shirley, Rolla and family,
Keeping you close to our hearts in thoughts and prayers.
