Brenda & I not only graduated from AHN together we also worked together at Alessi Bakery on Neptune while in high school. What a fun time we had! She was always so fun loving, kind & genuine. I cherish the times we spent together as young adults.

But mostly I remember Brenda as being the Best Mom ever! She was her daughter's best cheerleader in all of her endeavors.

God now has another Angel. Heartfelt prayers for the entire family.
