    I will miss Brenda the most for her laughter as well as for her loyalty and dedication in all that she did. Her family meant the world to her and I am sending lots of prayers for help with their healing in this time of loss. I pray that you will have some comfort that she is no longer suffering and is pain free.

    Over the past 20 plus years Brenda was a devoted CJ and EMC team member always taking on whatever task she was asked to do. She always looked forward to being a greeter at the Ed Davenport / John Woodfin Memorial Golf event each fall.
    Brenda always had a warm smile and she openly shared her strong Christian faith with others which is testament to the special person that she was.

    It was a pleasure to have known Brenda these last 16 years. Brenda always a zealous for life, always smiling and always talking about her grandkids who clearly brought her so much joy. She will surely be missed by all who knew her. I pray your family finds the strength you need to endure through this difficult time. May the God of all comfort be with you in your time of need. 2 Corinthians 1:3-6.

        Hi Richie:
        So sorry to hear about Brenda. Our prayers are with you and your family. I still have such fond memories of seeing Brenda as well as your mom and dad at all of our Post 361 games. Those were such fun times. Are you still in Richmond. For many years I have often thought about all of my Byrd Park friends and all of my teammates on Post 361. Would love to reconnect.
