Brenda, we had a good many years metal detecting together and eating out & going to the mountains with Dot & Penny & rubbing those million dollar tickets we were surely gonna win. You and Dan were a bright couple in our livesalways fun to be with & always had good things to say even if the circumstances werent. I know u so missed Dan; he was the love of ur life & u, his. (Rolling his eyes when hed had enough always made us laugh). We really had nice talks abt & rediscovering the Biblethe first twinsspeak Italian with meoh, &, 4am revelations abt irrelevant topics4am?? Nooooo, its only abt 10-11pm! Get. outta.! here!! Thats what makes sisterly friendships so special! Thanks for finally talking me into joining Dogwood Crafters, meeting new people & encouraging me to improve my trays. I couldnt have done it without u! By the wayi never did get the soap off my shoesand every time i make lotion i think of our tin foil funnel & purple dye!! And staying up half the night wrapping soapsu snoring & us talking & laughing in our sleeppayback for laughing at me drilling holes in wine bottles & getting me to do door hangers! I told u i was gonna laugh when u fell & couldnt get up!i couldnt help it.u shouldve moved the chair! Lol So, now that Gods got u back on ur feet & u r sitting there flipping ur halo, nowww whos gonna call The Little Man ??? They r going to miss u! Teehee! Brenda, you and I laughed so hard, so many times to the point of tears and peeing our pants!! No wonder u had to get a new washing machine! How about those long Scrabble nights and tail wagging days with the dogs and eating lunch by the waters edge?! And God might have a few things to say about torturing critter bugs & having those wild pajama parties! Lol But u had a good life, a good, supportive family, & sooo many friends who love u and we r all glad to have been a part of it! Thanks for being more than a friend! Say hello to Dan & Penny for us!

I was so sorrowed when hearing of Brendas death. She was such an amazing person. We enjoyed so much laughter when she and her Danny Boy as she called him lived at Seymour Johnson AFB. We enjoyed endless scrabble games and she was such a dear friend . She will be missed by many.
