Brenda was a special lady. Such a talented seamstress. She became so much more than that to me over the years. She was a good friend. I loved to go just visit with her. She was surrounded by a loving family. I got to Kelly well. She was as kind as her mom. She will be missed by all.

Hard to leave the way you feel about your sister, the one you loved, played bingo, had talks on the phone for hours, not hearing much of the conversation, we both had hearing
aids, thoughtful she was. I’ll miss you.

To all Mrs King’s family
It was with sadness I learned of Mrs. King’s death. I am sorry I was unable to express my condolences in person.
Mrs. King was an extraordinary lady, so gentle, so kind. She would hem things for me and always did a great job. I will miss her in Palm Hill.
May Mrs. King rest in peace. May your memories sustain you at this difficult time and bring a smile to your face and gladden your hearts.
