    Dear Family, I am truly sorry for your loss. Brenda was such a wonderful person and a great friend. A friend you never forget no matter the distance or the time that passes. Brenda and I attended Brookfield High School and experienced our first year at YSU. Brenda provided the transportation to and from college (she had this great Ford Mustang), me and three other girls would pile in her car and away we would go, talking and laughing the whole way. We had some great “Girl Talk” in that car. My memories of Brenda, I will always cherish. I was fortunate to be in her life a short time. She was a beautiful person who loved her God, her family and friends. Good bye my dear friend.

    Friendship Forever

    To the family of our dear deceased sister Brenda,
    We greet you in the name of our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is with heartfelt sympathy, that we send this letter of condolence. We continue to keep you in prayer during this difficult time. May we offer to you a word of scripture to comfort you? Psalms 116:15 reads “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” We find extreme comfort in that because we know that Brenda was a saint! Therefore the Lord calls it precious, because though she no longer dwells with us, she us in the loving arms of God. We will miss her, and God knows that. So let us look to another scripture. John 14:1-2 where Jesus said: “Let not your heart be troubled. Ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my father’s house there are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” We know that there was a place already prepared for her.
    May God continue to bless and comfort you. We will continue to keep you lifted up in prayer.

    Yours in Christ,
    Pastor Brian K Johnson Sr.
    (New Light Missionary Baptist Church of Sharon Pa.)
