Please pray for our whole family and especailly her 15 year old daughter, Rachel. Will keep everyone posted. Love you all. Hate this disease. It is so unfair.

    My heart aches for you, your sister, your whole family, and as you said, for Rachel.

    I pray that these last moments for Brenda are painfree and that she can feel the love of all of you surrounding her.

    I am really sorry. I am thinking of her, you, Rachel + all of your family. You are a wonderful sister for her. I hate this disease too. It is very cruel.

    You have been such an

    You have been such an incredible sister! I know this is heartbreaking for all of you and must be so for Rachel. I join you in hating this disease! It robs all of us and our families, and it is so fricken unfair. Hugs- you will remain in my thoughts and prayers for peaceful moments ahead.

    Oh Amy,

    I'm heartbroken to hear this news. Even though I communicated with Brenda just a few times, we really had a connection and a lot in common in life- we talked about teaching, our 15 yr olds, our faith, plus the frustrations of this damn disease!
    I really can't believe it's come to this- I'm so very sorry for what she, her daughter, you, and all of your family is having to go through with all this. My only comfort is that I believe that instantly when her last breath is taken that she will then be in heaven with Jesus. I will have someone else to look for someday when I get there myself.

    Oh Brenda- I'm so sorry- I had looked forward to having another talk with you soon- guess it will have to wait for another life. Can't write anymore- can't see the screen through my tears.

    Hugs to you Amy,

    I have always wondered?
    I have always wondered? your picture? which one is you, which one is Brenda?

    I didn't know, or had forgotten, that Brenda is a teacher. I am too. High School.

    Oh Amy:
    Not what I wanted to log on and read. I am so very, very sorry. I had so much hope that things would turn around for Brenda. As Brenda journeys between two worlds may she feel the peace, comfort and love surrounding her.

    Hugs - Tina

    Heavenly father as you get
    Heavenly father as you get ready to call Brenda home we ask that her final moments be peaceful and pain free. Lord as she enters Heaven meet her and let her know that she is loved and missed. Be with her family especially her daughter during this terrible time. Amy I'm very sorry that this is happening and short of a miracle I pray your sister will pass peacefully.

    God Bless
