Kelly & family: I’m so sorry to hear of Brenda’s passing. 💔 She was an amazing woman. Strong yet so tender and kind. Always smiling and optimistic every time I saw her. So many wonderful and fun memories of horse shows together! She loved her Kelly so very much! I had the chance to catch up with her in more recent years as I worked for her oncologist and would see her from time to time. She was so proud of you Kelly! She never once complained about the hand she was dealt. GOD received a beautiful angel. Hugs ❤️

First Kelly I would like to say I am so sorry for the loss of your Mama. Aunt Brenda was a great woman. So many of my memories each summer from around the age of 6 when we started coming to Georgia. Even the "bad" memories such as stepping in a hill of fire ants outside of Granny's house when she was taking us for ice cream at Dairy Queen. She taught me how to crab and take my allergic behind on a horse and I loved every minute of it. She made sure that we had an AMAZING time even when we weren't kids anymore. I love you and I love her. She is now safe and pain free and I look forward to seeing her again one day.

Aunt Brenda, every summer I looked forward to the time that we would come to Georgia. I have so many memories that revolve around you. You taught us to crab, took us horseback riding, went to the beach, and to Granny's church. The things we did each summer were simple, but the memories we made will last a lifetime. The one thing I regret is that my children will never get to make those same memories with you. You will be missed, but I know that you are free from suffering and pain and at home with our Savior. We will meet again one day. I love you.

Aunt Brenda, I have so many memories that revolve around you. Every summer, I looked forward to coming to Georgia. You taught us how to crab, took us horseback riding, went to the beach with us, and went with us to Granny's church. The things that we did were simple, but the quality time you spent with us gave me memories that will last forever. My only regret is that my children were never able to meet you and make those same memories. I know you are in a better place and free of pain and suffering. We will meet again one day. I love you.

Brenda was a long-time saddle club friend. Always had a smile for everyone. I will miss her even though we didn't connect much over the last few years, but I was always glad to run into her.
