Hi sweetie, i am going through our pictures and found some that i wanted to share.  Love you sweetie
Posted by Vonnay Brook on September 28, 2021
Good morning Sweetie. I left a picture in the Gallery. It says Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. So true. All the adventures we had are treasured memories.

Are kids are so helpful, kind and loving. All are doing well, healthy and with Christ. It makes me cry, to think that they all love the Lord too. Thank you Lord. This goes for there spouses as well 

The USA is in a total mess, you are lucky you are not here. Biden is dividing our nation in many ways. Its is so sad. Demrats have managed to bring back the 1918 pandemic,1929 depression, race riots of 1968 and gas is almost $5.00 a gal all at the same time. It is so sad. I refuse to worry, as I no the Devil will NOT win. You do Christ. Its an upside down world. The Plandemic is still going on, they want us to wear masks, its so sad. They speak out of both sides of their mouth and lie and its not even debated. No logic to any of it.

Enough said I love you and miss you. Your ever loving wife

Hi sweetie. I know you know this. Your brother died Thursday nite Feb 25, 2021. 
Ray and Gay were in Las Vegas for Thanksgiving. We were at Jeff and Denise house.  When I got home I had a strange voice tell for the 2nd time since Vegas. So I FaceTimed with him. The voice said “ I will greet Him”. Didn’t know why or who. He had a friend tell him “ I will meet him”. So he surmised it was the Holy Spirit.
I know you would been there to greet him too. Enjoy your reunion. Love you miss you as ever

Hi Don....As Vonna says, a very upsetting year. The fires in California have been devastating. So many people lost homes and business's.  I imagine that some of the places you may have hiked are now just ashes. But God will renew the land. Miss you....Bill and Sharon

It’s interesting the time heals but never forgets. This was the day that you passed From this life into your loving Lord and Savior arms.
A day I will never forget.

The US and most of the world is still in lockdown from Covid. We have learned to cope in these trying times. Thank goodness for the Lord.

It is an election year and everything is in a turmoil besides Covid. The negativity is awful.  I pray every dayThat the Lord will heal our lands and Nation. And that we stay with God and trust him. And not become a socialist country. Lord we pray to you.

Will never forget you sweetie.

Hi sweetie Love you
Today would have been our 55 Anniversary. Wow you have been with our Lord and Savior almost 10 yrs. Doesn’t seem possible. We were Married this day in 1965 in your parents living room. With our family in attendance.

They were amazing yrs. i trusted God that you were the right man to lead us. God blessed us with 2 more wonderful children. So our family was three. Jeff was 3 years old. 

A life with many adventures, from camping in a tent to trailer to small motor home to large motor home. Traveling every summer all over our wonderful nation. Seeing’s 46 oF our 58 National parks. Seeing many state parks as well. Even in Canada At Bowron Lakes. Also going to Alaska. Almost forgot the Mexican Riviera.
Hiking every where in those parks and hills,mountains and streams.
To having a canoe, speed boat for learning to ski to a sailboat And sailing the Pacific.
To flying to Australia,New Zealand for 6 months. China and Japan. Also with our time in Cancun with Hurricane Keith bearing down on us. Chad and Terri too. Even lots of helicopter rides in Hawaii, Australia and of course New Zealand. 

I know you are doing the same in heaven.

I heard the other day, Prayer is the key to heaven but faith is what unlocks the door. Lord you never left me nor me you when times were tough.  Thanks for blessing my life with Don, your faithful servant. 
Posted by Sharon Kirkland on July 7, 2020

We miss you and know that you could answer some of our questions. Vonna and I visit, mostly phone or email. We will be seeing you. Love Bill and Sharon

I will ever be grateful for the support given by Don, while I was a student at MSAC and later in life while trying to restart my life. Don supported Froylan and I in our journey towards marriage which lasted for 38 wonderful years.

Hi Sweetheart. Another year has gone by. This has been a strange year. The world got hit by a virus, called Corona19 from China. It literally shut down most of the world, including the USA. President Trump and the CDC thought that million would die if we didn’t isolate from each other. Closed us down in middle of March. The USA is finally opening up. This is July.

It hitChad and his business really hard. He has been trusting the Lord and was able to hire back his employees. He is so like you it’s wonderful. He has come up with so many creative ways to keep his business going, shield for the face, 3D printing. Now he has FDA approval to manufacture swaps for testing. 
Chad and Terri celebrated they 24th Anniversary yesterday. Wow

Jeff business has done fine. So thank the Lord.
Jeff and Denise hosted my 80th Birthday at their beautiful home. Because of the virus we had Scrap our plans. So Ray and Gay, Mary Lou and Ahmad, Duane snd Ollie could not come.  I drove to Vegas the back way, easy.
Got to their house and the next day had my hair cut by my old Hair dresser, with everything shut down I was Shaggy.

Met Peggy and went to lunch. Got back and Chad , Terri and Tyler arrived. Tyler is getting so tall and handsome. 

Jeff BBQd a great dinner, breakfast all the days. He is amazing cook.

We went swimming and the spa. It was so delightful. They made it special with great Decorations, Denise did a great job. Sometimes I got sad cause I missed you.
It was nice to celebrate with them. John Mark was there too. He is delightful. You would be proud of all our kids, grandkids and of course Great grandkids.

When I drove home I stopped and saw Ted and Janet they moved from Diamond Bar to Apple Valley. Their home is delightful over looking the golf course lake. They were so sweet. 

When I got home Dannielle sent me a beautiful flowers arrangement. We order dinner in for my birthday. Restaurant were closed. 
Her job has been fine. They did work from home for a couple of weeks. School were all closed. Zack and Ashley are wonderful kids. Smart and beautiful.

Things are starting to open. Thank the Lord.

As far as I am concerned, I live a quiet life, I walk , play bridge on BBO as I have done for years. Run my errands. Jojo my neighbor and friend are together almost every day. I have been helping her with bridge. Every Sunday we have breakfast together since this has started. We watch church on line.

I guess that catch’s you up 
I love you and get tears in my eyes yet thinking of you

Posted by Vonnay Brook on September 28, 2019
8 years already. Days are slow but months and years fly by.

Dannielle and I went to Chad and Terri ribbon cutting ceremony. All the Anaheim dignitaries were there presenting many certificates , for opening a new business in Anaheim.
It was a proud moment for them a goal achieved after 19 years of renting to own it. God has been good to them and they recognize it all is by His grace.  It was a long day. You would have been so proud. I certainly was.

Summer is turning to fall. We had our 1st rain last nite. 1st morning I didn’t sit outside it was to cool. You know we always ate outside to enjoy Gods creation.

Dannielle brings me fresh flowers every Thursday, all kinds I Love them. It makes my week. We generally go out for dinner than.
Chad calls every morning M/F nice. Jeff calls several times a month.

I know you are cheering us on from heaven it nice to know. We all know God is with us.
Love you sweetie

Remembering Don's kindness and care on this day, with so many memories. When I has hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in 2000, Don wanted to walk with me but was dealing with Parkinson's Disease, in early stages. I wanted to share time with him, too, so we developed a plan for almost a week in July. He drove back roads to meet me each evening, and we camped together. He brough plenty of food, cooked meals, and carried my backpack and supplies in his car. I only hiked with a light day-pack, and was able to hike over 40 miles/day. We had such a good time together every night, with lots of remeniscing about our hiking days as Boy Scouts. I continue to remember my Big Brother, who was a mentor for me, and continues to be through these fond memories. I know the day will come when he will welcome me home.
Posted by Ted Eastman on September 28, 2019
I'm forever grateful for Uncle Don's advice, for many people have no advisor.

So blessed to have had Don and his family sow into my life. Don chose to make a difference, and in a quiet, wonderful way, he showed us how Father God loves us. Someone once said, "Those that have gone on before us are cheering us on......from the grandstands of eternity." I can see Don doing just that, and for that and all he did in my life, I am eternally grateful. Well done, good and faithful servant.....

Life is a harsh teacher. However, Uncle Don made it easier.

Well today would've been your birthday 79 wow anyway I'm back in California I sold the house in Las Vegas because of my eyes. I'm living with the Dannielle as the house I purchased won't be ready until the end of the month. Don you and I looked in leisure Village a long time ago when we left Penn Valley. I remember you didn't like it because it didn't have a two car garage for the most part .
I still miss you greatly but it's a new chapter in my life and I know you will always be there for me with the Lord.
It certainly is a busy year Jeff turn 55 Chad turn 50 Dannielle moved into a new house I bought a new house Jeff and Denise are buying a new house in Denver Colorado near Alycia and Kris .Noah graduated from high school this year doesn't seem possible and Alycia and Kris had twins a boy and a girl really cute and really little. Zack has his permit to drive and is so excited.  Ashley is going to middle school and Tyler is working for the summer in Chad's company all good and all growing up. But one thing we all know is that the Lord is with us and that is good. You would be proud of our children they're all honest have integrity and with the Lord and they're all doing well.  Love you sweetie forever and ever

Ray and Gay sent me a text today that was sweet.

Forever Missed  we think of you often and especially today with prayers of peace and comfort.
It's hard to believe that Don left his earthly home for heaven 5 yrs ago.
May you be filled with cherished memories that put a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

Also got a wonderful texted from Deb and a sweet phone call from Susan. 

Don you made such an impression on people's lives you would not believe. 

I miss you and always will.  Love and God bless my coming and goings.

During his times in Hacienda Heights, my Uncle Don was always helpful to family, friends and neighbors. We miss him but are lifted by remembering all his contributions to us.
Posted by Vonnay Brook on July 7, 2016
Well today would've been your 78th birthday. It's been five years since you've been gone gone and I still miss you. It's not fun to be alone but of course that's being selfish. I know you with the Lord and that makes me happy .
I'm up in big bear California in a delightful place that you would've loved too. 
Enjoying company and the peace and the quiet and the lovely sound of the breeze through the trees plus all the wonderful smells of pine. I just know you're hiking all of her heaven, because that's what we would be doing here. Love you as always
Posted by Chad Brook on July 7, 2016
well another year has passed, still miss you everyday. Its always catches me off guard when I get notification from my phone, saying its your Dad's Birthday today. I start thinking about all of the hikes and adventures we had. It makes all the difference in the world as I spend time with Tyler, knowing how special it is.

Love you.... POP!
Posted by Ted Eastman on October 12, 2015
Uncle Don had many roles and titles. We called him teacher, mentor, scout and man of solutions – basically a MacGyver at times.
For example, Uncle Don modified a 1980sToyota motor home into a gadget filled wonder for family fun.
I definitely miss him.
Posted by Vonnay Brook on September 28, 2015
Well Don its been 4 yrs today of your passing...The days go by slowing but the years fast. This year has been a year I have experienced Christ, so much. I traveled to Europe and many times felt your presence with me. But I went to OR, MN and CO for 3 weeks, what a blessing. In MN meeting by cousin Dorothy and Guy was such a delight. I listened to them for 9 hrs. with my jaw dropped open at their life stories and how God worked in their lives. I came home praising the Lord in so many ways. 
Also the books I have read, explaining heaven, I just knew they were true. I knew you would be HIKING all over heaven. What a joyous feeling I have had with that. 
Also the blessing I received from the Lord on your birthday, I still cry over what the Lord showed me that day. Don I miss you.
Thank goodness for the blessing of the Lord on my life. Love
Posted by Dannielle Brook on September 28, 2015
Hi Daddy, I miss you so much. I think you often and the "Definitive Christian Gentlemen" that was used to describe you. Mom and you were truly blessed by God to find each other in this world and share your love together. Ashley and I lit a candle this morning for you, we decided to let it burn all day in remembrance. We discussed you and the book of Daniel, since I have been reading it lately. I am trying to instill in my kids, the love of Jesus, reading God's Word and the hope that one day they will accept His love in their hearts. I don't know if I'm doing it right, but God is in control and he will decide on their timing. I want us all to be together in heaven. I truly miss you!! Love Dannielle Joy XOXO

Vonnay, Don was a great friend and colleague of Froy Tiscareno and a good friend of mine at MSAC. I know you must miss him and now I am missing Froy. To my great sorrow, Froy passed away Sept 3, 2015. I feel a big hole in my life and am so lucky to have our girls. Love, Millie
Posted by Vonnay Brook on July 8, 2015
Wow Don time passes so quickly, but does not diminish my feelings for you. I feel you at times in my thoughts and of course my dreams.
I finally made the trip you and I wanted to go on, from Romania to Amsterdam, a river cruise, I thought of you soooo often. At times it was hard, but the Lord is always there to help me, and I so appreciate HIS presences Honey I love you and miss you
Posted by Dannielle Brook on July 7, 2015
I miss you so much and think of you often. Today, the kids and I celebrated your 77th birthday. We made you chocolate brownies.

I know you are keeping watch over us in heaven. I Love You so much!!! Your daughter, Dannielle Joy

Heaven is REAL! Don is there with our Lord waiting for us. He is never far from my thoughts. I am thankful for my big brother. Praise God for Don and the legacy he left with three beautiful children and for a thousand generations to come. God promised to "show his love to a thousand generations of those who love him" (Exodus 20:6) and the Lord "remembers the word he commanded for a thousand generations". Gay and I joyfully celebrate our love for the Lord, and for Don, with Vonnay, Jeff and Denise, Chad and Terri, and Dannielle.

Whenever I think back on my childhood, and the many great times visiting the mountains which I have now called home for the past 26 years, Don Brook is a part of those memories. For me, his greatest gift, was giving his time to kids like me, who've grown into men that are paying his love and passions forward. Well done Don...good and faithful servant.
Posted by Ted Eastman on September 28, 2014
Uncle Don was always so helpful. I remember in 1985 he taught me basic statistics for a physics class I was taking at CalPoly. He made it fun and interesting. I truly miss you uncle Don.
Posted by Vonnay Brook on September 28, 2014
Wow, Don. time does march on.....this is the day you went home to the Lord. No way could I ever forget the day or you. You were my sweetie, and the love of my life and I do miss you. Time heals but doesn't forget. I am in the Lord's hands, it is the only place I feel safe and secure, thank goodness,
Had a surprise this week, Margaret Clark die and also went home to the Lord. I just feel you would have greeted her too. Don I love you and truly miss you. As always I rely on Psalms 37V5 Commit everything you to the Lord and trust in Him to help you and he will. Love Vonna
Posted by Ray Brook on July 10, 2014
My big brother is never far from my thoughts and memories always flood my mind on special events, like his birthday this past Monday. We celebrated the day, like Dannielle and other family members. Don was my mentor from birth to forever. He was always going ahead of me, preparing the way and sharing with me. He went to be with the Lord almost three years ago and those words Jesus spoke to his disciples (John 14) ring in my ears, as not only from Jesus but I imagine them being said to me from my brother: "Do not let your heart be troubled, trust in God, trust also in me. In my father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you"........Don, I know you are there and I look forward to seeing you again whenever Jesus says to me "Come!" I love you brother>

It's been 2 yrs since you left to be the Lord. I was recalling your memorial service where you were defined by your friend as a Definitive Christian Gentleman. Your strength and faith in God defined you as a man. I am growing my strength and faith & I know you would be so proud. My goal is to baptize my kids as you had always asked for. I still want to make you proud. I love &missyou dad

Happy 75th birthday Daddy!!! I miss you so much. Pastor's sermon today talked about you and the seasons of life. He reminded us that God said life is short and to choose to be joyous today. It's hard because I miss you dearly, but I know I will see you again in heaven. I will light 75 candles on your cake and celebrate your life and my memories of you with the kids. Love you lots Daddy!!!

Good morning Sweetie. I left a picture in the Gallery. It says Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. So true. All the adventures we had are treasured memories.

Are kids are so helpful, kind and loving. All are doing well, healthy and with Christ. It makes me cry, to think that they all love the Lord too. Thank you Lord. This goes for there spouses as well 

The USA is in a total mess, you are lucky you are not here. Biden is dividing our nation in many ways. Its is so sad. Demrats have managed to bring back the 1918 pandemic,1929 depression, race riots of 1968 and gas is almost $5.00 a gal all at the same time. It is so sad. I refuse to worry, as I no the Devil will NOT win. You do Christ. Its an upside down world. The Plandemic is still going on, they want us to wear masks, its so sad. They speak out of both sides of their mouth and lie and its not even debated. No logic to any of it.

Enough said I love you and miss you. Your ever loving wife

I love you sweetheart Happy 80th Birthday

Shared by Vonnay Brook on July 7, 2018

Today is July 7, 2018, wow its been  yrs since you went home. Doesn’t seem possible.  

A lot has happened, I finally left Las Vegas in June 29, 2017, and purchased a home in Camarillo, CA on July 3rd.  Moved in Aug 14, 2018.  I wasn’t sure I would be able to move, but the Lord said, I could do it in 2 hr’s segments.  So I went through the whole house twice.  Took 14 bags of clothes to the Walter Hoving Home for Women, 8 car loads to Lutheran Thrift Shop, 4 car loads to the Library.  Plus the entertainment unit went to Good Will.  I decide  I would keep what I needed and what I liked.  Lord was right, it did not exhaust me.  Then I had the movers that we had when left Penn Valley.

The kids are all fine, all have moved, Chad a few years ago.  Jeff and Denise followed Kris and Alycia to Colorado, not a surprise.  Kris and Alycia, had twins last yr., William and Samantha.  Adorable. Kids are all fine and growing.

Dannielle, Zack and Ashley, moved also to a new place in Ventura.  A lovely home..  Zack is a Senior wow, unreal, and driving.  I still remember. A milestone in everyone life.  Ashley is a sweetie too.  

Plus of course me.... 

Tyler is starting High  Chad and Terri are shocked he is growing up to soon.  

I like my new home, Camarillo is lovely and green and humidity is great. My eyes are great..

Don, I miss you, I love seeing all of our adventures on the PicStar.  We had many, many wonderful times and God has always been with us.  I miss you

Never Forgotten, Loved Forever

My big brother always made me proud, and always will. He was my brother, mentor and best friend growing up, and for 70 years, until the Lord took him home nearly seven years ago.

Don always set a high bar for me to follow, but encouraged and helped me to be myself. I remember him often, and a smile always comes to my face when I relive a story from sharing life together.

Sweetie, its your birthday today, at least your earthly birthday, your heavenly birthday is Sept. 28th.  

It has been better, but there is no way, I still miss you.  This week I was notified that Bob Woiwod died on Tues. July 1st.  I know you would have greeted him, but at the back of the line.....cause that was you.  I miss everything about you, but the Lord is helping me with this life and I am forever grateful for that.  

The picture is of your family with only Zack and Ashley missing.  It was Terri;s 40th birthday party.  Chad was so sweet and asked me to help him.  It was here in Sienna, what a delight.  Of course you should have been there too, but in away you were.  

Sweetie, I have read soooo many books on heaven and it does seem to be indescribable. as you said...The word always strikes me when I read it.  
Love you forever  

Going to go to Big Bear this Sat. and it will bring back many memories of all the times we were there.    
 Oh yes, some great news,  Dannielle was baptisted and she is attending church.  Chad and Terri are also attending church close to them....Answer to lots of prayers.   
Love you Sweetie.
