    Brenda was my friend and my sister-in-Christ. To Dean and her family, who she loved dearly and was so proud of; I offer my sincere condolences. Please know that your loss is truly heaven's gain. Without a doubt, Brenda is healed and rejoicing with her Savior. She surely has many jewels in her crown because of the many ways she reflected His love here on earth. Rest easy my dear friend. You fought the good fight, you finished the race. You left behind a wonderful legacy of love.
