    There are no words to describe the loss for our community. Lynn was loved by many and will be greatly missed. My heart breaks for my nephews, Shawn (Alli) and Thomas along with the rest of the Brooking family. Please continue to pray for the family while they work to get through this difficult time.

    Dear Family of Alvin Brooking,I would like to express my sincere sympathy. I was born and raised in Louisa, so when I read about your family member passing away I wanted to reach out to your family.It was not too long ago that my own family suffered a tragic loss of a much loved family member. You can be sure that hope and comfort are found in the pages of the Bible.1 Corinthians 15: 54 tells us of a future promise that GOD made to swallow up death forever”. It is also wonderful to learn of this promise from John 5:21, ” For just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes alive whomever he wants to.I really hope these promises will bring you as much comfort as they continue to bring my family.Sincerely Mrs. Sandra Watkins”
