I will never forget Aunt Brenda and Uncle Dan’s wedding day. She was getting ready to leave for their honeymoon and I was talking to her in Grandpa and Grandma’s house. I was in awe at her beautiful hoop dress. I thought she was such a princess. We were so lucky that day to gain an amazing aunt. She was so much fun. We spent the night at their house sometimes and had the best time. They treated all of their nieces and nephews in a way we always felt special. I also got to see them become parents. Bryan and Zach were her pride and joy. She adored her family and was so proud of her boys. She will be missed by so many people. We love you, Uncle Dan, Bryan and Zach.

I have so many beautiful memories of Aunt Brenda. From being little and having slumber parties, to her buying me my first pair of high tops at Farmer Franks (I had dreamed of these sneakers for so long!) dress up and princess play at their home in Paonia and growing up through the years, being welcomed to their home in Parker while living in Denver and feeling so loved while I was visiting. I remember how much she loved her boys and what joy she had being around family. Her smile was one of complete kindness, selflessness and love. We love you dearly Aunt Brenda and will miss you terribly!

I met Brenda through 9 years of friendship with Bryan. She was always a kind and warm hearted person to me. Always made me feel welcomed when I came to see Bryan and was very supportive of Bryan's decisions. She would always tell me how proud of Bryan she was for his accomplishments and I always told Bryan how he has such a wonderful mother. I will miss her kindness and wish all family the best and my sincere condolences for the loss.
