    I only knew Mr. Brooks for a short time but I will never forget him. I could have sat with him for hours and listened to his stories about his time in the military and many other escapades. He was a great man and will truly be missed.

    Bill will be missed in this life, but I hope to see him in the next. What a wonderful person. I will miss our spontaneous dinners and discussions about everything. He helped me buy my first home where we celebrated a few times with friends on St Patrick’s. His kind heart and peppy spirit will be missed.
