Brooke is the youngest daughter of Ernest Posey (Melissa), a long-time member of the Southern Yacht Club, and Marie Gregory (Todd). Sadly, Brooke was killed in an automobile accident on March 16, 2017 at the age of 17.
Though young, Brooke truly lived life to the fullest. Brooke joined the Southern Yacht Club swim team, The Seagulls, at the age of four. Brooke began riding at the age of eight and had become an accomplished equestrian competing in horse shows across the country. She enjoyed water skiing, snow skiing, and sailing/boating. Brooke loved music, festivals, and boy bands (especially One Direction).
More than anything, however, Brooke was defined by her love of family and friends. For Brooke, “family” was much more than just her immediate family members. She loved bringing her entire blended, bonus, beautiful family together. Cousins too numerous to name were more like siblings. And, though Brooke loved her older family members, she adored her younger cousins, niece and nephew. The littlest family members truly had her wrapped around their little fingers.
