There will not be a day the rest of my life that I don't think of you. I was so blessed to have known you and experience your beautiful spirit for 56 years. Missing you is a challenge. We have a eternal bond, my forever friend. Until we meet again Brenda, know I love you with all my being.

My heart is filled with gratitude for all of the years that Brenda was a part of my life. As so many have said, she was so very loving and giving. There were very few times that I saw her angry. She always greeted me with a loving smile, a warm embrace, and a kiss. Her sweetness was like no other. My life has always been brighter by having Brenda in it.

Life has now changed forever, but I will hold you Brenda always in my heart and remember your life as an example of how to be, loving, grateful and to live in the moment, for none of us knows how long we will be in this world. Life is a gift, no matter what shows up, let us embrace every moment that we are given.

Your light shines bright in heaven now, just as it did in this world and with each sunrise I will think of you with love in my heart.

There are no farewells or goodbyes to someone so special like you, only precious memories that will last forever. It was an honor to parents our boys Mark and Jeff together. They were our trophy of life. I wish I could give you part of my time to be with them longer but instead I will give you my promise to love and protect them and our precious grandchildren as long as I live. Brenda, you are as beautiful inside as you are outside. Go Rest In Peace, you will never be forgotten. Thank you again.

Love, Joe

Brenda was my BFF and so much more. She was that person who always had a smile, who laughed lots and never judged anyone. Brenda had unconditional love for her family and friends. I was blessed to have known her for as long as I did and to have her in my life. She was like my older sister who I could confide anything. Not only was she a wonderful friend but she was one of the best moms I ever knew. She loved her boys, daughter-in-laws and had so much love for her 4 grandchildren. Her brothers and sisters meant the world to her.
The Beckers' have been my family since I met them in 1969. We share many memories and will cherish all the wonderful times I've been a part of through the years.
God Bless you Brenda. RIP
My thoughts and prayers for her entire family. Love you guys.
