My heart aches for your loss. Brenda's memory will forever be etched in my thoughts. The sound of hummingbird wings, the sight of a bird's nest and the smell of flowers will be a constant reminder of how she touched my life. Her heart was as tender as a petal on a rosebud but she was as tough as a pine knot. May you find comfort in knowing she loved all of you dearly. May God bless each of you. With sincere sympathy, Brenda's friend, Kaye Bordner
