"Brenda is my mom. She was a strong-willed and caring soul. Whenever you called her, she?d pick up even if it was in the middle of the night. Many of our friends consider her like a mother and she treated them like her own kids?that included her notorious ?table talks? when we were in trouble. Our family and this community is suffering a great loss with her passing. I find comfort in knowing that her spirit is in the hands of our Father and she has entered into life everlasting. I love you, Mom. "
