I am so sorry for your loss. I moved away from Danville this past March so I didn´t know that Brenda had been sick. We were high school best buddies! She was the sweetest person I have ever known. Always looking out for somebody else with that shy smile on her face. The last time we ran into each other she was taking care of her dad and we planned to get together for lunch but it didn´t happen to my regret.

Dear Tim and family; My heart is just broken for you and your family for the loss of your dear soulmate, Brenda, your children's mom and your grandchildren's loss of their Grandma. The love she had for her family was very evident and yours for her was too! I have known Brenda since elementary school and she has always been so sweet, kind and giving. I pray The Lord will wrap his tender loving arms around you all and give you the strength you need to endure the coming days, weeks and months ahead. God bless you all. Much love Brenda. I know where you are, No more pain and sorrow. Just bask in the Love and Light of The Lord.
