    I just want to express my deepest sympathy to the whole family. I worked closely with Brenda for some time and she was a lady with a giant heart. She always had a smile for everyone she met. Sorry I couldn’t make it to the funeral but know I will be praying for the whole family. RIP Brenda. Till we meet again.
    Love, Ruthy.

  3. Thele family, I am praying for your comfort during this time. It was a pleasure caring for her and getting to know you as well. Jeannie, RN
