It is so sad to hear of Brenda's passing. She was such a special woman with a lovely smile, beautiful eyes and an inspiration to all.  If anything got her down she never showed it.  May her soul rest in the peace of God.  If anyone has information for funeral service or life celebration, please let me know.

My condolences and sympathies to Brenda's family. She was way too young and so full of life.  

I am stunned. Not too long ago we chatted about art and now she is gone. Brenda was everyone’s friend. I remember riding around town in her Ghia and how many times it broke down 😂.  And then there was the concert at JFK Stadiym where Carolyn L., Brenda and I went to see The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and Grand Funk Railroad - what a blast.

Dave Simmons - Brenda spoke often of you and her fun times with you.

Sharon - we were just talking about that concert last week and how much fun we had.

All, Brenda was my best friend for 50 years.  This has been a heartbreaking time for me.  Everywhere I turn, I have reminders of Brenda and the fun times we had together.  She was the best - so kind and funny with a free spirit heart.  Words can never describe everything she was to me or the hole that is left in my life without her.

My prayers for healing and comfort in the memories of your friendship and daily reminders. I hope in tinevthe tears will be replaced with a smile as you go through your day remembering Brenda.
