  1. You were second mom when I desperately needed it. Their family taught me what a normal family looked like & loved me when I couldn’t love myself. You will be dearly missed & fondly remembered. <3

  2. Big Hug waiting when we can visit again. Brenna was a dear Lady, she will be missed.😢❤

  3. I was so broken hearted to hear about Brenda’s passing. I’ve known the Gant family since I was in high school, so roughly 30 years. Brenda was such a kind hearted person. She’d always check in on me at least every month for the last few years. She always spoke so highly of her daughter, Cheryl; her granddaughter, Sam; and her son in law, Brian. She will be greatly missed!

  4. To my SCA mom and friend of many years. Sheryl, Sam and Bryan my deepest sympathies. My heart goes out to you all. I will be thinking of you.

  5. My thoughts and prayers our with you, your parents are together and very proud of you!

  6. Dear Brenda, we didn’t always see eye to eye as coworkers but as long time friends our hearts were always in the same place. I love you Brenda. You will be sorely missed.
    May you rest in peace
