When I think of Brenda I think of her smile and infectious laughter. She was a dear friend of my parents for many years. I have so many happy memories growing up of weekend barbecues with Brenda and her family. It is comforting to know she is with her heavenly father, her dearly departed husband, and also my mom who was her friend and had passed many years before. Brenda loved the Lord and always had worship music playing in her home. Too many memories to count thinking of sweet Brenda. Rest In Peace and rise up now with your heavenly father.
