    Brenda was like a real Auntie to us, even though we were not related. Our two families have stayed together all these years and will continue to do so. A true friendship. Brenda will be sorely missed, but please know that your family are in our hearts and minds during this difficult time. We would love to pay our respects but current restriction mean that we cannot. Dad (Ron) and I will keep a vigil for Brenda and we would love to give you all a Virtual Hug, until we can meet you in safety in person. Love from Stephen, Jenni, Hannah, Ellis, Joe, Rachel, Esther, Ellis and of Course Brenda and Dave's best friend Ron (St. Ives - Cambridgeshire) ****
