Brenda, I am so sorry you had to go through the pain that you did. You are now at peace and rest awaiting jesus to rise you up in glory. Your Boys are so strong and couragious and i only know that trait must have come from you. You fought to the very end proved the doctors werent God on so many occasions. You are so loved and will me missed more than you’ll ever know. Its hard not to grieve over your death but i know you and you wouldnt want us to grieve. Your spirit would want us to be happy, live life to the fullest and to have joy beyond its definitions. You brought love and peace into everyone’s live’s and touched the hearts of all who knew you. I thank God for letting me get the chance to know you and want the world to know that you will always be remembered and never forgotten. Rest in peace my dear friend and may we all be reunited in the Lords home above one day.
