Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear of the passing of Brenda. She was always so sweet, loving, and kind. I know she will be greatly missed by all that were blessed to know her. Prayers for comfort for her family.

Mrs. Hopkins was my 2nd grade teacher. I remember what a great teacher she was and she was very sweet. MY condolences.

Dennis, Words cannot express my sympathy enough. Because has held a special place in my heart since I was a little girl. I remember our talks almost daily after she got out of school. The numerous times she prayed for me over the phone. The excitement she would show in sharing others joy. I know your heart is broken, as your earthly jewel is not in her eternal home. Prayers in the days ahead.

Brenda was a wonderful woman she's in Heaven with my my Mom singing with the Angels

Mrs. Hopkins was my 2nd grade teacher (1987-1988) and was one of my all-time favorite teachers. I remember feeling encouraged and cared for when I was in her class. She inspired me to become a teacher, and I hope that I have as positive of an impact on my students as she did on me. I am so sad to hear of her passing and my prayers are with you all.

Dear Family of Brenda, I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Brenda at Kentuck School. She was such a joy to be with and she radiated love in her words and actions. May Jesus wrap His loving arms around each of her family members and give them peace.

Brenda was such a sweet Christian lady who " walked her talk." It was such an honor & pleasure to work along side of her as a fellow teacher @ KES for 16 years. She was an excellent teacher & sweet friend.

Brenda was a precious lady. I knew her through her sister, Blanche Stone. Prayers for Dennis and other members of the family for comfort, peace and strength.

I am so sorry for your loss. Will continue to pray for the family during this time.
