Day 588: Brenda’s Passing Through

August 12, 2015

  Just after midnight this morning, surrounded by love from her entire family, Brenda answered the call and slipped into heaven. 

Our loving warrior teacher has gone ahead of us and we look forward to joining her in glory one day. 

  The celebration of her life will be held August 22nd, 1:30pm, at “CLA” Christian Life Assembly (21277 56 Ave. Langley. All are welcome (typical of Brenda). Come be inspired by the life of an amazing leader in life, family and faith. You will leave a better person as a result. 

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in her memory to Arrow Leadership Ministries or Barnabas Family Ministries.

    Dear Carson, I am so sad to hear this news (even though there was warning of it) and I am praying for you and all the close family through this time of grief. She was a wonderful woman and I know there will be a big gap in your lives now. Very best wishes for God’s comfort. Rebecca Rohrick (was Beard)

    Carson, My deepest sympathy to you and your entire family. Brenda’s Cancer journey through her blog, has been such an inspiration to me and to numerous people. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend the funeral as I am in Australia until end of month. My thoughts and prayers will continue for you all. Carol, a sister in Christ from First Baptist.

    Brenda is a gift to me. I write ‘is’ because the impact she had on me when we spent time together at Soulstream will always linger with fondness and gratefulness.

    Dear Brother Carson,

    My heart goes out to you and your family at the going home of Brenda to her eternal heavenly home, to be with her Lord Jesus Christ.

    I will continue to pray for you all.

    “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, and the flames shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 43:1-3

    “I am the resurrection and the Life; they who believe in Me, though they die, yet shall they live, and who ever lives and believes in Me shall never die.”

    May our good and faithful Lord be your comfort and strength at this time.

    Your brother in Christ,
