Eulogy For Thomas Brenson Broome
Heaven: the final frontier. This is our voyage. Our mission: seek everlasting life.
To boldly go where all saved men have gone. Star date 4/27/2018; Thomas Brenson Broome Sr. is called to his final mission. We are assembled here today to pay final respects to Brenson. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life.
Brenson believed in God and that by being saved by the blood of Christ; he was just moving on into that final frontier.
Brenson was a man that truly enjoyed having family and friends around him. I focus for a second and I can clearly hear that great laugh of his; almost as if he were standing next to me laughing. He loved playing games especially card games. I think he loved cards so much because it brought people together laughing, joking and just having fun. It also created everlasting jokes and stories to tell on each other. ( knock) Kathy and Becky.
He also love watching movies. He could tell you about every one he watched. He loved Elvis and his music. One of his great moments was when he went to Graceland. His face lit up when he told people about his trip to Graceland.He loved to take pictures and assemble them into albums to create the stories of that moment and time, and we have all enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane this week with those albums and look at how much we have changed through the years!
We all need to take the que from Brenson and remember to enjoy this life you have. We need to set aside time each day to enjoy only if it is 30 minutes at the end of the day to do something that brings you joy; whether it is cozying down to a book, movie, reading a bedtime story to the kids or just putting up your feet with a cup of hot tea or coffee or playing a hand of cards.
Brenson final words would have been that he loved us dearly and to live long and prosper!

When i would always come over for vacation or spring break or something, right when i walked in you would already have the cards dealed out and were ready to play no matter what, and win or lose you would always be happy because you family was together. But when you did win you would always call me a winney baby or a cry baby and it was hilarious to watch you laugh at your jokes and i wish every time i go back it would be the same. i love you so much and you will always be a big part of my life.
