I met Brenda through the Camden School System. She was so pleasant but carried a very firm "stick" when needed. At the time of my retirement, Brenda insisted on giving me a retirement party and she with help of some other great girls made my departure from the work force a very positive "goodbye". I will always be grateful to her as one of the nicest, positive people I met while working for the Camden School District. Brenda, RIP. To her family, my sincere sympathy and glad to have known Brenda. Sincerely, Esther J. Duerr

I Miss You Miss Brenda and Will "Till We Meet Again"
To the Family: I am sorry for your loss.
I hope somehow it helps knowing that I too feel a tremendous loss.
Miss Brenda certainly lived up to the Aries Ram charging her way thru life ,taking command at all times and will all things.
She and my Aries Rams horns butt heads many times.She was like a Mother figure to me and her "Mothers Heart" was always her most shining factor that I will always remember and treasure.
I sorta look back now and see her much like the statue of liberty. A Majestic, Strong,Masculine Lady standing in defense of her virtues.Geez how much more beautiful is her strong ways now that I see thru hind sight.
Speaking of virtues, I would like to share something she shared with me a long time ago. I think she would really like for me to share this with everyone now.

She told me several times her favorite verse was from the story of Ruth:

" Ruth 1:17 But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God."
I only saw just need as I read on the next two verses:

"17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me."
18 When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her."
With tearful eyes I value more, how beautiful a stubborn heart can be.Sometimes it takes stubbornness to keep those beautiful virtues. Well Done My Friend.How much more beautiful you are Brenda Jean. Now you will soon be buried by your beloved husband. Rest in Peace together
"Tommy and Brenda"
