I am so sorry to hear of this tragedy, she was the sweetest woman I ever knew, never let anything stand in her way or get her down & depressed. I have known Brenda since grade school and always loved her attitude about life!
My prayers are with all the family, she will be missed, she is at God's side now, never to suffer again in life. I am happy for her in that way.
