To the family of Brenda I am so sorry for your loss. Brenda was such a wonderful friend and Nurse. My grandpa Lero Bumgarner was lucky to have Brenda as his Hospice Nurse in his last days. She will have many stars in her crown for all her great deeds and for being the loving person she was. Again I am so sorry for your loss. Praying for your family.

Brenda was such a blessing and a comfort to our family when she took care of our daddy. She had a very special way of ministering to us and all the families she helped through Hospice. She will be missed, but we know she is with the Lord. God be with your family during this time.

We are so sorry for your loss we didn't know Brenda but knew of her and what a wonderful person she was and what a wonderful mother and grandmother and wife she was. She fought a hard battle but she has was the race and is another one of heavens gains. We pray for the entire family and close friends to have peace and comfort in this time. I know she will be missed but knowing she no longer will be in pain has to be a comfort to all that loved her so much. We are praying for the entire family
