    I just wanted to offer my sympathy for the loss of your daughter, sister and aunt. I have fond memories of Brenda growing up and as we have reconnected over the past several months, I have been touched and amazed by her compassion and care for others fighting cancer and life’s challenges and she battled her own. Peace be with you all.

    My deepest sympathy. I always thought Brenda would be around to have that lunch that we never got around to sharing. I miss her friendship. She was one of a kind – a real jewel.

    I wanted to extend my deepest sympathy for your loss. I worked with Brenda and enjoyed her spirit. We would always talk about KU, Roy, and Bill. Even her political thoughts were entertaining. I will miss her but grateful for her memories and strength.
