Steve and family,
I am very sorry to learn of this and I wish I could be there. Brenda was a wonderful person and my life was the better for having known her. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and I know she is happy since she is now with the Lord she loved so much.

I am very saddened and sorry to learn of Brenda's passing. I worked with Brenda at Delco for many years. She spoke of her love of her church and for her family. Brenda was great to work with and always had a smile on her face.

I am very sorry to hear of Brenda's passing and her tragic illness. We worked together at Delco for several years. She was very kind and a delight to be around. We always laughed about being twins as we have the same birthday. May she now be at peace.
