Was so privilege to have known Brenda and her family especially she and her sisters. Also, very blessed to have worked with Anita, Brenda and Vickie at different times and companies. As a result of friendships formed with Brenda's loving family, I was included in several family gatherings and events as you became one of them. Loved every minutes of those times together. Brenda will be missed, but she will always have a place in my heart. Sincerely, Nadine
