I am so saddened to hear about Brenda's passing. I was a college friend who she drove back and forth from college for years. She was the kindest person I had ever met. One year I had a late final and there was a snowstorm coming. She was so kind to say she would wait and drive me home because she knew how worried I was about the storm. I had lost touch after we both graduated, but Alumni band brought us back together. We realized our kids were similar in age, and we were both incredibly active in scouts. It seemed like we had never lost touch. We chatted about our kids often. She was so proud of the fine young men her boys had become. My prayers go out to the family and Vinnie , Joseph and Matthew. Please know the entire alumni band sends their love and prayers.
