Dear Mr. Brandes,
I am so sorry for your loss. My heart, love and prayers go out to you and your family. I wish I could be able to be there to show you my support, just as you did for me in high school, but unfortunately I will not be able to make it. Sending so much love and prayers.

Heartfelt sympathy and condolences to all who love Brenda and especially to the family she so treasured. It is hard to imagine this world without Brenda in it, she has always been so full of LIFE in all of it\'s seasons. I treasure each memory I have of our long time friendship and celebrate her spiritual reunion with loved ones who have gone before. Blessed rest and joyous beginning of the next way of being dear friend. Until we meet again in God\'s great heaven....
