To the Family,
Mr. Kroll was such a support to me whenever I would come into the library. He always made special accommodations for me to work with distractible students and allowed me space to display unique artwork above bookshelves. He was kind and caring to All.

It was such an honor to meet, work with, and befriend you, Chad. The laughs that you left at Brookland will be echoing down the hallways for years to come. You were a good man who impacted the lives of so many of our kids, all for the better. Your skills in coding and your passing of experience has allowed many of our kids at Brookland a doorway to a better life, and that is only part of your legacy. Thank you for your kindness and your friendship. The library will be so much quieter without your pranks and laughter to fill the air. Rest easy, friend.
