Brenda, said Michael, my husband wasn’t right, joking with him. Now we’re both not right. We both need you more every day, and it’s not right, that your not here. We will always miss you, we will alway love you. Life just won’t be the same with out you and the spice you brought to it. Love you mom, M&M

Bob and I will miss Brenda's larger than life spirit. She never hesitated to help anyone who needed it. We loved spending time with her while being here in Florida. We are so lucky to have known her because she had a way of making everyone around her feel special and happy. We will miss her dearly and we send our love and prayers to her family. I am sharing a funny little photo that brings back a happy memory of a night out with Brenda.

I’ve been wanting to share here for awhile but every time I write something it doesn’t seem good enough.
The words don’t seem to truly say what my Aunt Brenda meant to me.
When my Mom passed, (her sister) all I wanted was my mom back...that wasn’t to be.
What I got was a loving Aunt, a best friend, a confidant.
Aunt Brenda checked on me often that first year...she made sure my first birthday without my mom, was special. She called me every month...sometimes just to tell me a joke before she forgot it.
She would send me cards or something she made, or a funny story she cut out of a magazine. I recognize her handwriting...when an envelope was in my mail box from her, I knew it was going to be a good day!
She made me “check in.” When I didn’t...she reminded me.
I told her secrets, things she never judged me for.
I listen to her tears when she didn’t want her precious kids knowing she wasn’t being so strong.
Her kids where her world! Countless times she told me that.
Countless times she reminded me...that my mom felt the same way.
She lost too many...sisters, husband, friends, her Luis.
Through it all...she still had a passion for life.
I want to tell whoever reads this all about my Aunt Brenda...I want to tell you about her sense of humor, her very strong opinions, about how she found joy in simple things.
I want anyone who reads this to know of her love for family, friends...the holidays...carnations and angels.
I want to tell everyone everything I can remember about her, but tears won’t let me...I miss her...maybe that’s all anyone needs to know...

My Mom, the one person that I could count on for a tight hug and kind word. Always encouraging and supportive in my life but never judging in my decisions. I feel your love and guidance now although I miss you immensely, that will never change for the rest of my life. 💗 I love you, Mom!
