The Delameters and Brooks go way back. Many a weekend night was spent playing card games at either house. Church events were attended together. Both sets of kids grew up friendly with each other. Ruth is the last of our parents to leave this earth, but is now joined with her heavenly friends.

Our deepest condolences to the entire Brooks Family. Ruth was a lovely lady and great neighbor for 35+ years. Her beautiful smile and annual Christmas card blessings will live on in our hearts. Gertruda Avenue lost a good one!

Mrs. Brooks was our neighbor for 50 years. She was always there when someone needed her. We were all part of the "Gertruda Gang" in the early years. My thoughts are with Jim, Beverly, and Marjorie.
