Brooks Corbett

I just found out that a friend passed away recently. Brooks Corbett was an inspiration in many ways. In the picture above (from our trip to Mount Washington in 1992) he is the young man on the far right. We reconnected on Facebook for a brief time, and I am thankful for that final chance.

I met Brooks when I was 21. He was probably the first man my age that I was ever able to have a deep and caring conversation with. He taught me many things about friendship and about showing genuine affection and respect. I am a better man in the world today for having known him.

With gratitude and respect Brooks... I will miss you.
