Brenda was a special lady and someone I've always looked up to. Her infectious smile, wit and genuine presence will truly be missed by anyone who knew her. She was a classy lady who could roll with the times while never loosing her humble and caring nature. There was no such thing as a generation gap when around Brenda, and that too, I admired. We shared many good times, and I can only hope that she'll keep my spot warm for our next meeting. Although you'll be missed Brenda, I celebrate you. My condolences and healing energy go out to her family for their loss.

What an incredible lady. Even though we didn't see each other often every year we exchanged Christmas cards filled with all our family news. Brenda was funny and kind and caring, and always concerned with how others were doing even though she had her own health concerns. Every year she would tell me I was special, but she was the special one. My thoughts and prayers to her boys - your Mom was the best.
