Brenda was a good friend to my family for near 20 years. She was so good with my girls when they were young. She helped us, and so many others, on so many occasions. I’ll forever be grateful for her friendship.
She will truly be missed.
Your duty, on this Earth, to your God, your country, and to your family and friends, to all others whose lives you touched, now faithfully and honorably fulfilled, you are relived of your Post - forever now at peace.
Rest easy, Marine.
