This memory is for Brenda's mother because I never new Brenda, however I know her mom, Lilly Pearl. I don't know if Lilly remembers me or not, but I was Lila Lee Stewart, daughter of Watt and Pearl Stewart, who lived on 16th street when you all lived on North Chadbourne. I have wondered for years where you were and thought about what wonderful parents Doc and Pearl were. Lilly, if you remember me, please email me at liladennis33@gmail.com. l would love to hear from you.

Lilly, I cannot imagine what heartache you are having, losing your daughter, but know that you are in my prayers that God will help you through this time of grief.

Tommy, I am so sorry for your loss. What else can one possibly say at a time like this? Since we first talked, I have prayed for you and Brenda, and I will continue to do so in hopes that our Father gives you the strength and peace that you need in such a time as this. I am always here, if you need to talk my friend. I am sorry that I never had a chance to meet Brenda and that will forever be my loss. But, as I mentioned before, I truly believe that she is on her way to a better place and someday we shall all meet again in a world of peace and love with no more sickness or death. To Brenda's family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences and may our father soon bring peace and comfort to your hearts. Again, I am very sorry for your loss.
