Brenda was a special person. She and I spend many hrs talking on the phone and spending time with each other.
James and I moved out of state so I could not be with her very often.
I am so sorry I will not get to be at the funeral, but my prayers and thoughts will be with Sondra, Cliff and all the family. I know she is in Heaven now and at peace. I will always have my memories of the good times we shared as a family and our special times together.
She will be missed.
