I remember the first time I meet your mother. She was so sweet to us ( Daniel and I) and made us apart of her family right then and there! As much as this breaks my heart I know she is with the Lord and in a way better place.

Ray, Kim, Keith and other family members. We are deeply sadden and are so sorry for the loss of your loving wife and mother! Betty and I remember back to the day you two were married at the Catholic Church across the street from Garland High School; and I was truly honored when you asked me to participate in your wedding as an Usher! Brenda looked like a beautiful angel as she walked down the isle to meet you at the alter! You two were truly meant for each other with the deep love displayed in your marriage! We remember the great times we all had going to picnics, camping and parties while working at the Dallas Police Department's Northeast Sub Station! Brenda helped us so much with transportation, practice, providing drinks and other activities; like out of town tournaments, when you and I coached our daughter's softball team for five years! Brenda was such a wonderful beautiful person and soul inside and out; and will be dearly missed!
God bless you all!
