I’m so sorry to hear of Brenda’s passing. She was full of life! She was a wonderful aunt to Jessie, Brandy and especially to Lydia. Brenda and Wally were always present in their lives.
My heart is with you all today as you lay her to rest. I feel that I should be there with you but I cannot. Please know that you are in my prayers and I am with you in spirit. That is a lovely peaceful resting place.
I’m sorry for the pain this brings to family & friends. She will be greatly missed.
