    I am so truly sorry for her family’s loss. Her grandchild most of all, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Brenda was always with a smile on her face, no matter how she truly felt. She didn’t say a lot, but she showed her love to all. She left a hole not only in her family, but her community.
