Sorry to hear of Btenda's passing. I grew up next door to Brenda and her Family! I remember that she helped me with my reading at Wesley Chapel Elementary while growing up. Brenda was always nice to me and others and I am sure that Gene and her Family will miss her greatly. Rest in Peace Brenda! Your Cousin, Sam Wilson

Mrs Brenda was an amazing woman. I haven't spoken to her in over 25 years but she has always held a special place in my heart. I dearly love her and Mr. Gene. They are the finest people I have ever met. Mrs Brenda was one of a kind and a very beautiful soul inside and out. I remember when I was dating Rusty many moons ago and had to have braces, I couldn't eat anything solid and she made me the best mashed potatoes I had ever had. I love you Mrs. Brenda and I know you will be dearly missed. Mr.Gene I love you and you and the boys are in my prayers.
