    Brenda, we had been through so much together over the many years we were friends. From Dressing up as Elves at the Long Meadow Christmas party, to working at Equity (B&W) for many years, to playing golf at Long Meadow. We both served on the inaugural team to form the first Women's Cities in Lowell. Lunches at the Whipple when I couldn't drive as I was in a cast on my right foot, you faithfully took me there. You even took me into Boston for my surgery. You were a great friend, and I will miss you. XOXOXO. See you on the other side my friend.
