I am very glad you had a good life and raised your son to be a very good man.
You will forever hold a special place in my heart and be fondly remembered.

Dearest Danny- your mother, Brenda, will always be remembered for her love of animals, especially horses! Most importantly, she will be remembered for her love for you, her dear son. She loved you fiercely. I know you will miss her terribly. I am so sad for your loss.

I must say I was very shocked to see this sad news. Brenda and I were good friends for many years, but grew apart after I left town. I’ve often thought of her, as we spent countless hours riding the horn, listening and playing music and solving all the world’s problems. Brenda was really smart and had an infectious smile. She wasn’t hard to look at either, but we kept our relationship platonic. Many years later I introduced her to Patrick. Not long after they married and had a son. After Patrick tragically died I tried to help her keep up her home and farm doing minor odd jobs for her as I had done for him. We spent hours playing guitar and singing the old tunes as she kept an eye on her very young, at the time, son Dan. He was her entire world at that time. We lost touch after I left town in 1996. I went to see her when I returned in 2006 and she thought I was a bad influence on her new boyfriend. This didn’t upset me as Brenda wasn’t shy about expressing her opinions, I respected her wishes and left. She was probably right. She called me many years later and we only spoke for a few minutes. I had no idea she was ill. I do wish I could have seen her one last time. She could make me laugh and always made me think. I know one thing for sure; she loved Dan more than anything. Rest in peace my ole friend.

Brenda and I grew up together. Her mom was my grandmother. She was my aunt. I remember she was quite an artist. She could draw a picture of anything! She especially liked horses. You always knew where you stood with her. She was frank and outspoken which was appreciated by me. I moved away from Scotland Neck as a young pre teen. We lost contact over the years. Later on we made contact again on a few occasions. I will miss her beautiful bright smile. May God bless you Dan. Our prayers are with you and the family. She was loved and will be missed.
