Rae Brooks, you were a woman of valor. You fought your entire life for the end of oppression. You fought for equal rights, gave your life efforts to international humanitarian aid and showered us all with love and light. All you ever wanted was for us all to be happy. You grandma, made all of us, so very happy.
I have a new angel today. my beautiful Grandma Rae transcended to the heavens this past Saturday. I believe she is ok, maybe even smiling down on all of us, reunited with her husband, siblings, parents, friends…the list goes on. Rae Brooks, you were a blessing on this earth, I’m proud to forever carry on your legacy.
