My deepest condolences to your family, I was so heartbroken to hear this. Your mom is one of the sweetest, nicest, loving and giving people I’ve ever met. I had the opportunity of working with her at Food Lion #681 where we became fast friends not just co-workers. We ate, laughed, talked about God and traded fashion ideas with each other. I love her sassiness and would always compliment her on being so outgoing and living carefree. I will miss her random phone calls on the holidays or just to say hello and especially the last called I made to her to set up a lunch outing and never got through. I pray that God will give you all the strength you need at this very difficult time! May God bless you all.

To the family of Gale Brooks, what can we say! She was love and didn't mind sharing her love with you. She would offer her assistance to you if you needed her. When we were working on our building on Lincoln Road, Gale made all of the curtains in our fellowship hall and nursery! She did not mind sharing her talents for the glory of God! She will be missed by so many and we will continue to pray for her family! Pastor Lorenzo and First Lady Doris Nicholson and the Life-Line Church family.
