Brenda has always been a special little gal and over the years grew to love her, appreciated her, worried about her, and was always interested in her, hoping she was well and happy, and admired her for her love of life, and the fact that she took it in stride and lived it to the utmost, and you would never know that she had any physical problem, she was a trooper, and will be missed. Thank you God for allowing her to be with us this long, she touched many lives.
