Dear Scott and Betty, So sorry we couldn’t be there for you to honor your daughter. We don’t believe we have ever met her after all these years of knowing the two of you. What a really nice picture. She looks so sweet. Now that you told me she worked with my brother Ticky I feel a sense of closeness or sorts. Memories of Brenda will fill your heart everyday. May she be at peace. With Love Judy and Danny Poprosky

Condolence from Alan Davenport on September 18th, 2021 6:38 pm

So very sorry to hear this terrible news. I was taking my friend Glen to a meeting far from my home. On the way we talked about regrets. He told me his biggest regret concerned a woman named Brenda. There was no way to make it right. When we got there I parked the car only to find him talking with a girl. That was the first time I met Brenda. A night to remember. A few months later Glen was diagnosed with ALS. Despite his protests Brenda devoted the next 4 years to him. When he came to live with us so did she. Despite the hardships of the situation we always found time to laugh and when needed cry a little too. Glen died in her arms. I’m convinced she was the only woman he ever loved. I haven’t seen or talked to her much after his passing. Maybe it was too much of a reminder but she has never left my heart. I know she loved the both of you dearly. I will never forget her.

Condolence from Anna Fruggiero on September 21st, 2021 11:01 am

Dear Betty and Prescott,
May Heartfelt thoughts, love and prayers comfort you in this time.
