Brenda was a most beloved friend. She was fun loving and full of life. We were both single moms and I always admired her tireless devotion to her children. It broke my heart to hear of her terrible health struggles in her last years but she attacked every obstacle fearlessly with a fierce determination to live. I can only assume that she fought illness so hard out of love for her children and a desire to be with them as long as possible. God bless my beautiful friend and her children! May they all find comfort, love, and peace through the Lord.
