To the family and friends of Daniel Brooks,
Please accept my sincere condolences to you for the loss of Daniel. So sad to hear of his death.

I grew up in Bangor and was a friend, classmate and neighborhood "buddy" of Danny's. Together we played countless ball games, listened to records, went sliding/sledding, traded Hardy Boys books, attended school, and did all the things young boys do while growing up. Please know that Danny is not forgotten and is missed.

Yours, with deep sympathy,
Chris Carlisle
Hope, AR

Dr. Brooks, you ALWAYS made me smile. You were the best with all of my children with having them push the chair and the lights on and off! Your sense of their needs to help them feel comfortable as you helped them see, was outstanding! They all loved you and so did I. Your help with my eyes and your knowledge were exceptional. You will be missed greatly. Thank you and may the angels surround you on your new journey. My condolences to those that were left behind.

Dr. Brooks was my eye doctor for many years. He also was the eye doctor for most of my family members. he treated all of us with respect and of course, some humor now and then. He never failed to ask how members of my family were when I saw him. He also shared some of his stories about his family which at times had us both laughing. He definitely was a caring and compassionate person who will be missed not only by his family and friends but by those who were his patients. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. Rest in Peace, Dr. Brooks.
