Brenda was a childhood friend, we grew up together in same neighborhood, we went to school together. She was first one in the neighborhood to get a car. She drove me and 4 others to North Side high school. We lost touch after high school, and then 15 years later she sold me a great house that she was selling in her real estate company. Even though we didn't see each other often, I often thought of her and missed her being around. Rest in peace Brenda, and may your family be blessed with good memories of you, and peace in your passing. Prayers are with all the family. Forever remembered by Barbara Landsaw

I will especially miss Brenda when the Joel Young Band plays. She was always fun to talk to. I will miss her at the Eagles, I also know a lot of her friends will miss her too.

I wasn't just a babysitter for you kids. Because of your mom we are family. She had a heart of gold and the loudest laugh there ever was. No sneaking around with her. We got especially close when she and Aaron stayed with me a few weeks. My heart is broken for you all. She was a kind generous person who would do anything to help another out. Rest peacefully my friend. You are and will be missed. Love to you all.
