  1. I am so sorry to learn about Brenda, but if any thing can make it a little easier, it is knowing where she is now.Brenda was a wonderful person, as the whole family is, my heart breaks for all of you, for all of the family you have lost.Aunt Maggie has lost more than most of us can even think about.I have been, and still do pray for all of you ever day. Brenda will be missed very much.

  2. I am sorry to use this forum for this purpose. I hope it is not perceived as insensitive. I have found a wallet belonging to a "Mikayla Calico", whose name appears in the "Family" section of this obituary as a granddaughter of the deceased. There was no money except a few coins, but it does have a Social Security card which she'd probably like to get back. Please email me at: rossao@juno.com to arrange a pickup. I live in Broken Arrow, OK near 101st & 129th E. Ave. (Olive) Thanks
