    Brenda will be missed by her family, present and missing. She was a pillar of her family and often fought to teach them right and wrong. The last few years of her life were tough and not always happy. But Brenda lives on with her spirit of generosity and love. Remember in the words of Brenda “if you feel that breeze on the back of your neck, it means I am an angel and I love you”.
