Brenda Touched many lives. We will never forget her. She has transitioned from one stage of life to another. Just as the caterpillar going into her cocoon, we can’t see the beautiful transformation she has undergone. Yet we know she has spread her wings and emerged perfectly remade, bright and lovely like a butterfly. She will be missed beyond words until we meet her again.
