To Jack Brinkley, Sr., and family,
Jack, Jr., was such a fine person in so many ways - - devoted son, husband, and father, respected attorney, and loyal friend. I have so many fond memories of Jack, Jr., including the times we played tennis together with Jack, Sr. Without a doubt, he will be sorely missed. But what a difference he made in so many people's lives! The world needs more people like Jack, Jr. It was a true honor to know him. Please accept my deepest and heartfelt condolences.

I remember Tommy (and Fred) when we were growing up in Shenandoah Forest - he liked to tease "the Bennett girls". Later we again lived in the same neighborhood when he was raising a young family. I was so sorry to hear that he passed. May God's comfort and peace be abundantly poured out on your family, and may all your memories be sustaining and good.

Tommy and I met in the 5th grade and he was a fantastic friend to me. It is very sad to learn of this. I have posted a picture of us taken in front of his home in Shenandoah Forest when we were about 14. I remember those years vividly. The Brinkley family treated me like I was another son.
To his father, and brother Fred, and all the rest of the Brinkley family, I share with you in the sadness of his death and hope you find comfort in the best memories of his life.

This world has lost a champion for the underdog. Always willing to listen and always willing to help. Tommy also loved to talk about his family. That is when you could see the sparkle in his eyes and excitement in his voice, he was so proud of you all. I've known Tommy for most of my life and I will miss you my friend. We are praying Our Lord's grace, courage and comfort for The Brinkley Family.В
