    It was my pleasure and joy to have known this lady. I remember Brenda as someone who worked hard,played hard and fought hard to conquer her illness. Her Metlife family wii not be same without her. That smile and laugh will forever be missed by all.

  3. She is our loss but Heaven's gain. Brenda was such an inspiration to so many people, her laughter, smile & out-going personality could bring sunshine on a rainy day. Her family was the love of her life and she was so proud of them. She's left us with so many memories at Metlife, she will never be forgotten! Love & Prayers to the family
