    I am still in disbelief.. using “was” to describe Mrs. Brenda, is a lump in the throat, I still cannot quite swallow. There is not anyone like her, except for Heather (I always lovingly call her Brenda Jr.) The amount of remorse I have for your families grief, is extensive. Your loss is monumental. Wishing for comforting energy, as well as strength for grieving, such an incredible, loyal, kindhearted, sturn, hilarious, straightforward, reliable, dynamite lady. I will always consider her a friend, and I’m so thankful to know and love her. My heart is with all who loved her, as well.
