Randy, Vicki, and Family,
I know y'all will miss Brenda so very much, she was a sweet and kind gentle lady. Always full of smiles and laughs. I remember when we were little girls (Cyndie, me and Jami) and Daddy would take us to visit Uncle Jake and Aunt Lilly and Brenda would have fun stories to tell of when she and Daddy were our age - Great stories and even better family times because of the love that she shared so freely, even with us as little kids.
Keeping y'all in my thoughts and prayers as you find your way through this time. Heaven is sure jumping again with another Gray added to the Angel party.

Vicki Maximovich Posted at 10:28pm

Best Aunt a girl could ever have. She will be greatly missed by me. No matter how bad she felt she checked up on me. Have to say I will greatly miss her calling me kiddo when I am now 60 years old. Will love you always.
