One thought on “Brooks obit

  1. My mother fought for 4 long years with many ailments. But the biggest one being colon cancer. We thought it was gone once again when it returned in her liver.
    The week before her death we were lucky enough to go on a cruise to the Cayman Islands. She had a wonderful time spending time with family.
    Emerald Coast Hospice was a great help in her last 5 days. My mother was made comfortable and when the time came I believe she was not in any pain.
    I would also like to thank Dr. Andrew Weber out of Panama City Florida for all he did for her the last 4 years.
    She will be greatly missed!
