    I am so sorry about Brenda. She was one of the sweetest people I knew. I can remember her helping my Mother. Take her to Paris to buy groceries and later she and Dewayne would put flowers on my Mother and Daddy’s grave. They would buy them and she would always send me a picture after they had put them in the vases. This shows just what kind of person she was. I know she is with God now. I loved her and I had prayed for her each and every day that God would take care of her. Now, I know it was time for God to take her home. To all the family, she was truly a remarkable person. I was the lucky one to have known her. Dianne Woods
