Brenda and I have been friends for over 40 years. We met when we both worked at Cummings. We have traveled together, gone to plays together, both loved General Hospital and even saw Phantom 22 times in the theater together!

She has been an inspiration over the last year remaining strong with little complaints about how difficult this struggle was.

She was funny and had a completely different view on any topic we discussed. I loved arguing with her and enjoyed the challenge . Sometimes, but not very often, I even won! Most important was having her to talk with over the difficult times. She was a great friend and will be dearly missed.

~My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time ~
