    My Heart is heavy over the passing of my dear friend Brenda! We worked together in the kitchen at “Tribes” for 5 years. We remained close friends even after we left our employment. She always had an open ear to my troubles that I would share with her. And she always had good advice. I got to know her kids and grandkids over the years also. I wanted so bad to be at her funeral today as they laid her to rest. I’m so glad I got to talk on the telephone one last time shortly before she passed into the spirit world. I will miss her friendship greatly, but I’m glad she is not suffering anymore. We were born on the same day, Oct. 22nd. That made our friendship even closer. My apologies to her kids and grandkids and her siblings for not being there for her funeral. My Prayers and thoughts are with her family. I know we shall meet again in Heaven! RIP Brenda! Thank you for sharing your friendship with me! Doksa Ake waciyankinkte!
