  3. John and Jeff,
    I am very sad to hear of your loss. I have many happy memories of time spent at your house and of your mother’s kindness to me when we were kids. Only a few months ago I saw your mother for the first time in many years and she spoke with pride and love of you and your families. You’re in my prayers.

  4. Dear Brooks Family,
    I am grateful to have known Jan. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor who always had time for others. I loved her smile.
    Her family took center stage at all times, and she was a wonderful parent.
    Prayers and best wishes,
