Losing a parent or grandparent is very difficult. The pain lingers, but so too do memories of the good times. Remember them, and smile.

I am saddened by my sisters departure ,but was not surprised for Brenda had been sick for an extended period of time. She had frequented stays and visits to the hospital and nursing homes in the area. I feel that my sister is at peace with no more pain or suffering . I will miss you and I love you. Thank you for all your help and guidance in keeping us together and safe during our childhood. Rest in peace for you truly came up on the rough side of the mountain.

God has called home one of his angels. She was such a wonderful friend and next door neighbor. I will certainly miss her but will never forget her and all the laughs that we shared together. May the Lord provide the family with peace and comfort in the days ahead. I love you Brenda!!! Until we meet again….
