I just talked to Floyd and heard just about the saddest, bravest voice I have heard in many a year. Brenda was a shy, sweet lady, the kind everyone wants to know but rarely does.
Floyd said, "we'll get through this, eventually" with all the guts and sadness so symbolic of the folks from Floyd's part of the country. We did not mention projects or trucks at all! The
hurt is still way to great! My wife of 32 years, Sarah, and I are the lucky ones, we got to meet Brenda, and she and Sarah were soon blabbing like old friends the first time we met.
Why say more? You all know "the story," and words aren't worth a darn here anyway. So, rest in peace and love, Brenda! There are two of us here in North Carolina who morn your
passing, and to you, Floyd, we're here if and when you need us!
