Brenda was certainly one of a kind, we shared so many laughs. She was a true Southern Woman and all of the good things that entailed. Her kindness to her friends and her giving spirit was a trait few have these days. She loved her family and proudly spoke of her grandchildren (and rightfully so) and their accomplishments. Brenda will be missed by all who knew her. I will cherish the fun times and always have a special place in my heart for her. -CHUCK HOWARD

Brenda was a great friend! I loved hanging out at the pool with her, getting fashion advice and just sitting with her and talking. I love her and will miss her very much.
