    Daphne &Family,
    My friendship with Benda goes back many years working with her at school and was always so glad to see her when our paths would cross since I retired.
    She was such a great mentor to the children and faculty. She loved and cared for so many students and I know they will remember her with love and thankfulness that she was part of their lives as we who were blessed to know and love her. Prayers and comfort to all the family during this heart felt loss. RIP, sweet friend!

    Kim, Daphne and Jamie, Brenda was a classmate of mine from first grade on throughout high school. We spent a lot of time together as children. She was such a blessing to my children and grandchildren in the city school system. She will be missed by all for her kindness and nurturing ways and as a sister in Christ to me. So sorry for your great loss. Love, Wanda Williams

    Brenda was my cousin. Growing up our family spent many summers in Fayetteville visiting our relatives. I spent many days visiting with her and her mom and dad during that time. My and my wife’s prayers and thoughts go to Brenda’s children and grandchildren in their loss. May God comfort you.

    Mrs. Brenda was the calm center of our school — she knew EVERYTHING going on. It will be very difficult to fill that gap (and she’ll never be replaced!). We will miss her every day.
