    Hi Susan, Don and Malcolm and family,

    I am saddened at the loss of your beloved sister Susan and beloved wife Malcolm. She was too young!!!
    I only had the privilege of meeting her a couple of times and enjoyed our interaction. Don, I know you thought of Brenda as a wonderful auntie to Andrew and Jenny.

    I enjoyed seeing the photos of Brenda’s life and hearing the stories Susan although the sound system was a bit distorted so at some point in the future when we are able to get together I would love to hear the stories again.

    God bless always and forever.

    Cousin Heather Podrow (on the McMullen side)

    My heart is breaking for Susan & Donald
    I have know Susan for over 40 years , then got to meet her sister Brenda , what a treat ! Will never forget working with Brenda at Eaton’s , always, always smiling, I don’t think she ever had a bad thing to say about anything or anybody. She always treated me and made me feel like I was her sister, loved listening to my stories about adventures and my family and made me feel like I was the only one in the room. It’s with heartfelt sympathy that Brenda is no longer with us , with love Hope ⭕️❌

    Remembering a kind and gentle soul who I was privileged to work alongside for 15 years, whose smile and cheerful attitude brightened each room she entered & each life she touched. She invited all of us into the ‘A-Team’ and referred to us all as members of that team. That’s how I will remember her. I was part of her ‘A-Team’ and as I recall, everyone who went in on a mission, came out together, no matter what. Rest easy and be at peace now Brenda. We will finish the mission in your memory.
