Brenda was such a warm and sweet lady. I met Brenda on several occasions and she was always so pleasant to visit with all of her fur babies. I even gave her my grandcat and she made him one happy fella. Rest In Peace my sweet friend.

I remember Brenda from when she worked for my mother, JoAnn Petrea, at Village Manor Nursing Home in Quitman, back in the early '90's. She was the best Nurses Aide in Texas!
