David, Joni and family, I have and will continue to pray for you now that Brenda is “Home “. We can all rejoice in the fact that her sufferings are over and she is exactly where her loving Savior wants her —with Him. I admire that you were always there with her, even on her worst days. David , several months ago, Brenda told me how grateful she was for all you did. And I was able to see your and Joni’s love in action when I visited. You truly walked with her all the way Home. I will and have prayed that you will be able to grieve and be joyful with the hope 1 Thessalonians speaks of. 🙏🙏🙏

Prayers and hugs go to Joni and David and the other family members. Still hard to believe this. But what a blessing knowing she is healed and sitting at the feet of Jesus! She was a very precious and dear friend and an awesome Sunday School teacher from my youth at MMBC. She loved us girls as we were her own and we loved her as much! See you in heaven Brenda. ❤️❤️

To the family of Brenda , my heart is sadden for your loss. My friend, Brenda lived 2 doors down from me on Aiken Cir in Berea. We went to school together and played together and went skating together. We hung out a lot. She was always a lot of fun to be with. We even doubled dated together. A true friend, and a good listener. I have so many great memories. She will be missed. Joyce McCarson

Even though I’m very happy for Brenda’s healing in heaven, I hurt right along with you knowing that I can’t phone her, talk on Facebook or have lunch and see her sweet face. She had been a very special, thoughtful, loving friend and I will miss her so much.
Lynne left a message on October 22, 2023:
I miss you so much already... I always looked forward to your good night wishes and here I sit, waiting.

David and family, I did not want to click on the obit knowing if I did it would be true. I never met sweet Brenda in person but she and I were Fb sisters. I have prayed many prayers for this sweet lady. Selfish prayers but God knows best. Now I pray for God to wrap His loving arms around you and give you peace and comfort In knowing that she fought a good fight and won in the end. She is whole and well and with her savior JESUS CHRIST.

Brenda has been my dearest friend for a number of years at our Church. She prayed for me when I needed encouragement and I prayed for her. She brought me so much joy and was one of my closest friends. I will miss her so much. David, please know that you and your whole family are in my thoughts and prayers. Love to all. Deb Moon
