FOR THE FAMILY OF EFFIE BROOKS(JILL,CAROLE AND FAMILY)
I WAS VERY SAD TO HEAR OF EFFIE'S PASSING. I KNOW THAT SHE IS IN A GOOD PLACE NOW, AND IS NOT HURTING. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THE FAMILY AT THIS TIME.
|Dear Brooks Family,|
We just learned today about Effie passing, we were in Colorado Springs, unable to attend the service. We are so very sorry to hear this. She was such a sweet lady. About 3 months ago she called here, just to visit, we had such a great talk and covered so many different subjects! Of course her news concerning family was filled with pride when she talked about all of you. Our thoughts are with you all...
