    We are extremely saddened by the loss of Brenda. She loved her family so very much, and our hearts are broken for you in your loss. Brenda was a very special lady, indeed. We could always trust Brenda to be honest and to speak her mind, and we often laughed together as she told about one of her many escapades. My family and I loved her and will miss her dearly. She was such an integral part of our family that whenever we were contemplating updating something in the house, we ran the ideas by Brenda first. In our household, it was an accepted fact that certain things had to be “Brenda approved.” As our daughter Rachel so often said, everyone needs a Miss Brenda.

    Tom, Shannon and all, Brenda was a gift from God. Her great attitude and zest for life always lifted my families mood when she was around. She went above and beyond in everything she did. We will miss her more than I ever imagined. She loved you all with all her heart and was eager to brag about how wonderful each of you were. We will be praying for each of you….
