So sad to hear of Brenda's passing. This lady was so dear to me and my family while we were at Railroad Avenue Baptist Church, opening up their home to us on several occasions. She had the most loving and warm servant heart, and dearly loved the Lord. I know she is so happy now with her mama Nallie, Hubert, and her children and grandbaby. Love her dearly.
