    Brenda was a very good Friend and she will be missed. I would see her in Raleigh on my lunch break when she was going to lunch and we would stop and talk for a few minutes and catch up.
    The last time we talked she was taking leaves at her Mother and Father’s house in Caraleigh. We talked about the good Lord and the Cancer that she was dealing. She said the Lord will take care of her. I told her he sure will take care of us now and always. What a Sweet and Caring Lady and Friend.
    I know you are Celebrating with Jesus.
