Ken & Bryce, I just found out about the loss of someone who was so special to so many. As a fellow Kappa Kappa Gamma, there was not a funnier, kinder, or better friend than Brennan. For years after we graduated, she faithfully sent "special occasions cards" keeping me up to date regarding her wonderful husband & then the birth of her beautiful son. My last contact with her was in the last year; I cannot believe she is gone. My deepest condolences.

I read "Brennan Doughtry Hodges over and over, knowing there had to be a mistake or two people with the same name. What a shock and what a loss! So young, witty and beautiful. She made working in bank marketing a blast. We had the same birthday! We had fun with that. And she married a man with my maiden name. We were meant to be! I love you, Brennan. Jane Hodges Starke

What beautiful fun memories I will always have of my good friend. Weekend trips on the bus to downtown Bristol, shopping and eating, fun sleep-overs are memories I could never forget. A beautiful family. My heart truly aches at the thoughts of Brennan not being here. She will be in my prayers as well as all the Faniola family who have such fond memories of the Dougherty family. May God Bless you all. Rita Faniola Crosswhite/Class of 1971.

Brennan made such an impression on so many, including me. Even now, thinking of her humor and beautiful smile, makes me smile. She could make you laugh, she was generous and she will always live in our hearts and memories. I'm thankful to have known her and worked with her at AIM. Praying for you Ken, Bryce & family for comfort and strength.
