I just learned of Brenda's passing. I am so sorry for your loss. I re-connected with Brenda & Regina a few years ago. Brenda's dad was my husbands ( Dempsey) uncle. I was able to send pictures to Brenda & Regina that was Uncle Russell's. Again, I am sorry for your loss. LeRoyce Brown

Mamma was one that made everyone feel like they were special because to her you are. She loved seeing the look on someone's face when she gave you a gift that she found just for you. It also tickled her knowing she got it on sale. LOL. Mamma was one of a kind. she was an example to us all on how we should love. Always forgive and do all you can to bring happiness to each others lives. She was so simple yet stood for so much. If you want to keep our mamma's memory alive do for others as you would have them do unto you.

Brenda was the only sane one in the office known as Savannah Probation. God speed

Brenda has always been a dear friend. We shared every week. They didn't come any better. I loved her and my heart is broken. I will continue to pray for the family.

He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away(rev 21:4)

My condolences to family and friends. I have know her since high school and actually hired her at the State Probation Office in Savannah many years ago. She was a very loyal friend and a dependable hard worker. I am very saddened to hear of her passing. Rodney Barnard

Brenda was one of the kindest souls to grace this earth. I cherish the memories of working with her at the Probation Office. Prayers and condolences to her beloved family. She loved you with all of her heart.

Laurie Bell, Rincon, Ga

It is hard to say goodbye to Brenda. She truly was one of the kindest people I ever met. Savannah Probation was a better place because of Brenda. She remembered every one's birthday and was the first to start a collection when one of us suffered a loss or illness. Fly high my friend - you are no longer in pain.

Rebecca H, Claxton, Ga

My sincere condolences to the family, the Bible tells us that death will soon be a thing in the past (Isaiah 25:8).Continue to trust in what the Bible say will come true.

Kay F, Savannah, Ga

My heart breaks with the loss of a very special and kind person. This World is a little darker without her light. I will be forever grateful for her Friendship.

Donna Williams Howard, Rome, Ga.
