Brenda was full of love! She enjoyed spending every single moment with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Brenda worked part-time at Pruitt and we would like to thank Mrs. Linda and Ms. Sharon for the support they showed our family during this time.
A very special thank you to the staff and the physicians at West Florida Hospital. The physicians provided great care for Brenda and to provide treatment for a very challenging unknown diagnosis.
She will forever be in our hearts and be missed tremendously. We LOVE you Mom!
