In lieu of flowers, you may donate to St. Judes Children's Hospital or Harbor Light Hospice in George Edward Brooke's name (Donation information listed below.) Ed was so good with kids as most of you know, so we feel like this is appropriate in light of the cancer diagnosis. Also, Harbor Light Hospice was so good to us during this time.
