I am so sad and send you my prayers and love. Brenda, as a teen, lived next door to me for many years. I will remember her that way and know she is with her mom. God speed Brenda.

We have many people in our lives, family, neighbors and friends. But no one knows each other like a life long friend .We have known Brenda for over 30 years, before we were married and had children of our own. We hold so many memories of Brenda. She was a huge animal lover. Every time we would make a visit she would have a new animal family member. Thanks to Brenda, on one of our visits, she had a litter of Jack Russel's . Well, with our two little girls along you can guess what happened. We picked out a puppy ! We named him Baxter! She didn't want any money, all she wanted was a trade. A Firby. Every time we would make a visit we were met up with a pack of German short hairs ! These visits were every couple years, but Tom and I looked forward to them. The pig roasts, dogs everywhere ! We have so many memories that will live on forever in our hearts. Fireflies, dogs (lots of them) pig roasts, friends. Brenda has touched our hearts forever.
