Ray and family, I am so very sorry for your loss, you are all in my prayers. I always saw Brenda with a smile on her face,even after her surgery! She always saw the bright side of things. You knew what was important to her: Ray, her family and the Lord. She is in heaven with Ms. Catherine now, and she is looking over you. I am so sorry there is never or will ever be enough or the correct words to say at a time like this. I was fortunate to know and talk with Brenda over the years, I loved her too and will remember her always happy.

I have been one of Brenda's physicians for years.
She never left my office without brightening my day with her "instructions."
She was a patient who will stay in my memory.
I pray her family will experience successful grieving.
