Kevin M. Brooks, Adventurer

Hi everyone,

It is with immense sorrow and overwhelming gratitude that I tell you that Kevin Brooks has moved onto his next adventure. Prior to his death, Kevin had many sweet hours holding hands, hugging and kissing those who love him.

His passage was peaceful. He was surrounded by family and close friends who sang him into the next world. His last words were to tell me he loves me.

I cannot tell you how sad I am.
I cannot tell you how grateful I am for the time we had together.
I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your support through this.

This cancer was too aggressive and cruel.

I am mute with grief.

HIs kids and I all appreciate your support. If you know any of his children, then you know how lucky I am to have them in my life. Please reach out to them.

Please remember Kevin as a friend, a father, a scholar, a thought leader, a storyteller, a dancer, a dreamer, a husband, a juggler, a kindhearted man, a bread baker, a wonderful man. The cancer is only a very small part of his story.

I will be sitting shiva in our KC home Saturday through Friday from 4-8pm. If you are local and want to come by, please do.

There will undoubtedly be memorial services here and in the Boston area. I will post on caringbridge as I have figured out more.

For now, I thank you all for your support. Please be in touch.
