Miss Brenda was a lovely lady and I loved her voice, when she sang solo in the choir at Second Baptist Church. She recently sang, my favorite song by her “No Cross No Crown” at my dad’s funeral and did it accapela and sounded wonderful! She will be missed, she can now sing with the Angels in Heaven
My condolences to the family. I knew Brenda from her membership at Zion Chapel UAFWB Church of Ayden, NC. She was a beautiful person and will be sincerely missed. I pray that the comfort of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ be upon you all
Mother Sarah Carmon
