I was a parishioner of St. Alphonsus Parish and worshiped with Mr. and Mrs. Brennan and their children. I also had the pleasure of working for Barbara's son-in-law Ken back in the 1980s at Lemle Kelleher. I remember well when we tragically lost Leslie and Brennan Michael. My deepest sympathy to Barbara's family. Barbara: simply one of the best and I was honored and blessed to have her in my life.

Absolutely beautiful in every way. Showed us such kindness in a time of need. The Brennan family is exceptional in many ways and we can't imagine how wonderful your reunion in heaven will be. Our prayers are with you all. We've learned that at Mass when heaven & earth are joined, we can almost touch the hands of those we love and who are waiting for us. God bless you.

To all of my extended Brennan family members: My heart is heavy and my sympathy to each one of you. You are all hurting in your unique way on so many levels. I can barely remember a time without Aunt Barbara being in my life, and how one word from her sweet lips instantly warmed and welcomed me. I will miss her but I find such comfort in knowing she has joined my dear Dad in heaven and that she can hold and kiss my baby girl Jessica again for me.
