Dear Kenny and Mary Ann,
This is Friday night and I just now read about your Mother passing away, Kenny. I am so sorry and I would have been at the service with tears in my eyes. I loved your Mom so much as I do everyone in your family. Sure wish I could have seen you and Mary Ann. I wish you all the best. With love, Linda

I will always have such fond memories of Millie every time my family would have dinner at LaTronica’s. My late mother, Ida Brooks loved Millie so very much and I am sure she was there to greet Millie with a smile and open arms as she crossed heavens gate. Every time I came to visit and while Millie was still working at our favorite family restaurant, she always made a point to visit with me. I will forever cherish her kindness. There is no greater loss than the death of a mother but as Willie Nelson sings, “it’s not something you get over but it’s something you get through”. The memories of the heart are what sustain us. Wishing the family my heart felt condolences.

Wishing you peace, light and love,
Susie Brooks-Corral.
