So very sorry to hear of Brenda's passing..we could go for years not see each other and still pick up our conversations..laugh and hug each other.. I was always told by many Brenda and I could pass for sisters..We moved out of the area or I would be there to say good-bye to a special cousin..Rest in Peace Brenda

You are missed already. Thank you for opening your heart to Britt and I many many years ago. I will cherish every memory I have. You were the best grandmother to my kids. I am very fortunate to say, you were not just a mother-in-law, you were my Mom and friend. I will try my best to be the mom and grandma that you were! Rest In Peace and I love you.
