Brenda was funny and her voice was soothing to listen to. This does come a shock for many because although they knew she was battling cancer, she just didn’t look ill and for that reason many had no idea she was fighting for her life.
Rest in peace Brenda, we know you were welcomed into heaven with open arms.
