    So sorry to learn of her passing. Her brother Mike was a dear friend & a brother to me. Brenda was always kind & gracious whenever Mike had Roger, Ron and I over. We all enjoyed sharing laughs with her as she had some good humor. I’ve not spoken to her since the late 70’s. I do know her late Step-Father George loved her & her brothers. Like Mike, he was a good man. Speaking for Roger & Ron, I can easily say we all enjoyed our time visiting at their home. They all made us feel like we were a part of their family. Brenda was a good woman with a big heart.
    My condolences to you all.
