BRENDA WAS A WONDERFUL FRIEND THAT I LOVED AND ADMIRED. I DON'T BELIEVE I EVER HEARD HER SAY AN UNKIND WORD ABOUT ANYONE. SHE WAS A WOMAN OF FAITH, COURAGE, AND LOVE. ANYONE WHO KNEW HER, KNEW HOW MUCH SHE LOVED HER FAMILY; AND EVEN WHEN SHE WAS SO ILL, SHE WANTED TO HELP OTHERS, ESPECIALLY HER MOM. TOM, CHRIS, KERRI, HOLLIE, JOHN, AND GRANDCHILDREN YOU WILL CONTINUE TO BE IN OUR PRAYERS. MUCH LOVE.

My memory of Brenda will always be the legacy she has left behind of her faith in God, her love for family and people, her devotion to living her life to do for others and to think of others before herself. Though faced with such tribulation of sickness, she showed such grace and bravery and always used it as an opportunity to witness for her Lord. She was certainly a role model of a godly woman. I will miss her precious posts on Facebook as she used that social media to witness. I pray for peace and complete comfort for her family and for those who loved her much. May it comfort them to know she is at peace with God. God Bless each one of you♥️

Growing up with Brenda brings very special memories to mind, from going to school together singing in church or just playing games like “ Pretty Girl Station “ . Such a strong and courageous woman was our Brenda, her battle with cancer never wavered when it came to her belief in our Lord. She stood strong and solid all through her battle. I’m proud to say that she’s my cousin my family who will be missed beyond words. I love you Brenda, be happy in your new journey in life ❤️.

I wish I had a picture of every memory I have of Brenda. She was such a kind and wonderful person, who could make me laugh. The last time I saw her we were at Walmart, I gave her a hug and she told me that her PET Scan had found some hot spots, but she was such a warrior, and we talked about our Heavenly Father and how much he could still heal. Your wife, and Mom will always be my hero, always. We reconnected on Facebook, the only thing I think it is good for, and it seemed some days daily we messaged or sometimes we just shared a post. I love her as my sister in Christ and as a good friend. I will miss you, but I know that you are flying high and walking the streets of gold with no pain and no memory of the hell on earth that you went through. I pray that each of you that God brings His comfort as only He can. Love to all of you!
