Dear Brooks family,

A star has gone out of your sky, but she will always be in your heart. I know Gerry, Kayla, Ryan and Evan loved and adored her and were blessed to call her "Gram". I'm sure she had a wonderful impact on everyone who was fortunate enough to know her.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
