Brooke and I met when we worked at LKW together. It wasn't for very long, but it was enough that I grew to love her. Her energy and personality was amazing, and my son adored her! He always said she gave the best hugs. I will forever miss my sugar cookie baking, kitchen mess making friend!

Brooke and I met when we were kids, we use to spend the night with each other for a week at a time and it was never enough. We loved Ace of Base, Hong Kong Chinese Restaurant, Dunkaroos, Church camps, begging Karen to take us to Chick-fil-A, and for me to spend just one more night, the list goes on. We went to school in Peachtree City but, were both “Griffinites”. Unfortunately, we lost touch over the years but, her family was like mine and mine hers. If I could turn back time, I wish things were different in so many ways. My fondest childhood memories have you in them, you are missed and loved Brooke!
