In the 70’s my wife and Brenda were in everything available – Mother’s Club and Card Club to name a couple. She’d often stop to pick her up and off they’d go giggling the whole time. What struck me, at the time, was how Brenda would “light-up-the-room” when she came. She’d even harass me, having to stay home with a couple of toddlers. Years later she’d stop to see her occasionally and, consistently, she’d do it again.

Her children, surely, experienced the same and will miss her brightening up their homes. Gals like Brenda are few and far between and she’ll always have a warm spot in our hearts and minds, as will the family she’s left behind. You couldn’t find a more down-to-earth and centered bunch of children - looking far and wide. To her daughters – your job now is to always keep her memory alive - out front - where every single mother belongs.
