We were only 20 days apart, our mothers Vesta and Nena were sisters so as my 1st cousin Brenda was more like a sister growing up and through the years. We had so many laughs and giggles. We’ve taken trips together and had so many memories. I cannot imagine the world without Brenda Ray, the “cat lady”, the “weather woman” , the nurse, the most giving and caring, fun person I’ve ever known. 😻 ❤ Your family and I will miss you. So loved by friends, patients and family. 😘 Carolyn

A life gone to soon and so unexpected. You were always there for me, my entire life. I am lucky to have had such a wonderful aunt. You were the sweetest and kindest person I know. You are the only other person to love Jim Cantore more then me. I will miss my weather woman. I am sorry we did not get to say goodbye. Forever in my heart. I love you. 💕
