I was sadden to hear of Brenda's passing. She was such a Godly influence in my life. Terry and her were my youth leaders for several years at Jones Avenue Church of God. I remember good times with her. I always appreciated her love for God and for her family. Heaven is sweeter now with her there. May God richly bless her (and Terry) for their Godly influence on my life.

Terry and family,
I just learned of precious Brenda's passing into the presence of our Lord. I am deeply saddened that such a sweet soul is no longer with us. Brenda was a selfless, kind, and wonderful lady. Always giving. One of the Lord's most willing workers. Brenda and Terry were my youth ministers years ago. They were tireless in keeping us on the right track and being a good example. They incorporated fun in all youth group activities--which were many. All the memories were good! I am so thankful for their caring. I know that even now Brenda is praising the Lord and working somewhere in Heaven. God bless the Foster family. One day we will rejoice with Brenda again!
