The things I know about Brenda Cunningham :
-She is now in heaven with her mother and with God
- One of her favorite memories was going with her son to The Strand theatre in Marietta
- She loved her sister chick events, and she loved her sisters. She talked about her love for them every day. She knew she was blessed to have them
- The last thing she said to me Monday night before ‘goodbye, see you on Saturday’ was about Mike: ‘Bless his heart, he does so much for me ‘
- She loved Mike, and she often reminisced on the early years
- She was completely in love with Alyssa, and she was so proud of everything Alyssa accomplished
- She was proud of my son and daughter. She couldn’t wait to come to William’s graduation party on June 8th, and she wanted me to pick her up early to help get the venue decorated- she was upset I hadn’t decided on colors (LOL)
- She was so proud of my Kaitlyn for volunteering at the hospital just like she used to
- She loved to sit and talk over a meal, and she always struck up conversations with the servers
- She always thought of others first, even though she was sometimes too stubborn to tell them
- She loved shopping for hours at a very slow pace
- She loved flowers and decorating her outdoor space with Jan
- She was so grateful that Nan’s health was getting better everyday
- She loved going to Chris’ house for family time and home cooking
- She loved all of her new stainless steel appliances
- She loved her cat
- She made me her soul sister, because she new I wished for siblings
- Sometimes she got really mad at me, and it never lasted long
- She loved wind chimes
- She could walk for four hours at Walmart if she had a buggy to lean on, but I couldn’t - she didn’t care (LOL)
- She deserved everything wonderful - she was wonderful
- She loved my husband, and she knew he was a wonderful man
- She loved me. She was not concerned about my personal space, she hugged me anyway. She taught me about heart hugs
