An amazing human being that was truly a loss. If you didn't get to know her, she was full of life, a beautiful and kind person, and I'm sorry for those that didn't know her. And I'm sorry that I let the years pass without communication. Forgive me.

Joyce and I were so sorry to hear this. She was a sweetie and hit the earth running. No doubt she will wear out a pair of wings or two before we catch up with her again. God bless and comfort all of you. We were just devastated to learn the news. Come see us if you need to get away. Call for directions first. Millboro VA is as big as Bone Gap but harder to find.

Brenda was my cousin's (Marcella) daughter and what a sweetheart she was. She was so full of energy and love. I always felt her love and friendship and kindness when i would see her often months and or years later. She will be greatly missed.
