We were so sorry to hear about your loss. Brenda was such a good friend of our mother, Nancy Miller Lewis for many, many years. Now they are friends in the afterlife. Brenda was truly a gift to anyone who knew her. A truly wonderful person. Now there is no more pain. Rest in peace.

I worked with Brenda's husband Mike. I only met her once and Mike spoke of her often. When we met I remember what a warm, wonderful smile she had. My heart goes out to Mike and her family. I know this is a great loss for all of you. Mike you are in my thoughts and prayers. Pam Hood (Rios) IAC Greencastle.

A friend of mine said the following after she saw the photo of Brenda that I posted, "She looked like a beautiful person and now she is a beautiful angel." I totally agree!

I will miss Brenda. Didn't she have the most beautiful smile you ever saw? She is with Jesus and I will see her again when my race has been run. Brenda had a very sunny disposition; I'm glad I found a photo of her in that sunny blouse.
