Brenda was a very special niece to me.
Her MOM Karleen was my very special sister. Brenda and I shared lots of good
times and good memories together.

To Brenda's family and friends along with myself we are so sorry and so sad
that we have lost her.

I will love her and miss her forever.
May she rest in peace.

She was an amazing woman that was taken from us too soon. May God continue to watch over those she left behind.

Mr. Ziliak, I was so sad to hear that Brenda had passed away. What a sweet girl she was. I had lost contact with her after high school, but I thought about her and her mom many times (Mrs Ziliak was always so involved at Holy Redeemer). My thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife, Bret, Brian and her children. God's love and peace be with you all.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've worked with Brenda at Travelers for the last 9 years. Brenda was a great mentor, manager and friend. She was there to help me during the hardest time in my life when my mother passed away suddenly in early 2013. This brought back so much emotion for me and I pray that her children find the strength during this extremely difficult time. She was thoughtful, generous and I'll definitely miss her. Rest in peace Brenda.

To Dave and Family, So sorry to hear of your daughter's passing. I have 2 daughters and cannot imagine losing them, even now. I was sorry about Karleen's early demise since I had known here since we were 3-4 years old. I will keep them in my prayers.
