Louise Emerson Brooks: 1946-2012


After a valiant fight and surrounded by love and light my Louise left us on Sunday, September 2nd shortly after 3:30pm. We are devastated and so very grateful for the tremendous care she received, the abundant prayers that surrounded her and for the peaceful and painless end of a long, courageous struggle.
Give rest, O Christ, to your servant with your saints: where sorrow and pain are no more; neither sighing but life everlasting.

Susan, I regret not knowing Louise before GC 2012. My own partner entered the gates of Larger Life eight days earlier, so I know and share your grief. May you be comforted by the great cloud of witnesses that offer their prayers for your support and Louise's repose in Christ.

You won't recognize my name at all, but I've checked your blog regularly for well over a year. You've given me a lot of pleasure and a lot of food for thought over that time.

I am so sorry for your loss; you and your family will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
