Rejoice in knowing how much she loved you and how truly proud she was of you!!! I am truly sorry for your lost and am grateful my husband got to meet her a couple of weeks ago!

    My deepest condolences to Brenda’s family. Brenda was a unique lady and nurse. I met Brenda some 20+ years ago and had the pleasure (most of the time)😏 to work with her in many different aspects. At times I was scared of her but learned to just give it right back. Brenda inspired and encouraged me to become a better nurse. She offered me opportunities to grow in the home health field. I always thought Brenda would be around forever. I know this is a very difficult time for the family. I wish somehow I had the right words to take the pain but there just aren’t any. She will be deeply missed by the many lives she touched. She always did things her way! A grand lady, Brenda Dunn. Keeping all in my prayers.
