"Brenda was the sweetest cousin in the world. .  MY first memory was when my parent John and Trudy took me and my two brothers to pick Daisey and Brenda up at the hospital and take them home after Brenda was born.  SHe was a beautiful baby and my name sake.  I always look forward going  to visit at the farm in Roane co. And spending the day with all my cousins. CHarlotte, Sue,Linda,Tommy we had the best time together.  Brenda was very talented and she really blessed my family when she sang at my Mothers funeral she sang In the Garden and amazing Grace.  NO music just her beautiful voice.   I was so proud of her. We have not keep in touch very much through the years but she was always in my heart and I loved her dearly.   WIll be praying for her precious family and send my love to all."

"My dear sweet friend Jan, my heart aches so bad for you. At the same time my heart is hurting because we lost a truly amazing woman. She was a wonderful friend but she was so much more than that to me, she was a shoulder I cried on when some loser guy would break my heart, she was Maw Maw Brenda to Austin, she had a servants heart...I remember when she (and you) got the trailer ready and cleaned for me so I could bring my new baby home to a clean house, the many manicures and pedicures she gave, the shopping sprees she would take us on, the thousands of meals and desserts she would cook. She was my karaoke partner for years. If anyone, no matter what size they were,  was mean or hurtful to one of us...she instantly became our protector and bodyguard. The many many Sundays that we spent in her bed (all 3 of us) watching Lifetime movies all day and all night."

"I hope you know how much I love you and how much I want to be just like you.....I know you wouldn't want me to be hurt or upset,trying to remember all good memories. My heart is broken, there is a big part of my heart that will remain empty forever. I know your looking down from Heaven thankful for each person who is giving me, Jake, and Mag comfort. I can see your beautiful smile and how you would enjoy all the kind post and all the pictures that have been posted on FB. You are loved by so many and will be missed by so many.  My mind tells me your in a better place, with a new body, and we will see you again, there is no doubt in my mind , but just can't get my heart to understand.  Your my Angel now and I know you will always watch over me, Jake, Mag, Zach, Elijah, and Madi....As hard as it is, we are trying to follow your final wishes, I think when we were together July 4th, you were preparing me, by giving me all the details you wanted even tho I didn't want to hear it. Rest in Peace my sweet Angel, sing with the Angels, I will love you forever...."

"A week ago tonight you and I were teammates at cornhole and almost won, but we didn't care because we were together having fun like we always have done. The morning we lost you I tried to do everything to think I was having a nightmare and trying to wake up! You were not only my best friend but my sister!! I got in your car that morning just to smell your sweet perfume and know that not too long you had touched everything I was. You have been there for me these past years when I was at my lowest. You are such an amazing beautiful woman and will forever be missed. I'm so glad that you were part of my life and forever will be my special angel. We will help watch over Mike because we are "Hollar family" and that's what we do. Dance with the angels and sing your beautiful voice out too God! I love you and have missed you every minute  since you have been gone and forever will. Until we see each other again. I will always look up to the sky and know you are watching over me. I LOVE YOU my sweet friend, sister, and my new angel! Love Michelle "your nurse""

"My friend.
Seems like yesterday we were sharing secrets, giving advise and learning from each other...life, love, happily ever after...we spoke of hopes, fears, dreams, faith...over the years I don't think there was a topic we didn't discuss...but all of those conversations did not prepared me for the loss of you. A final goodbye was not part of our late night slumber party chats. I will miss your beautiful smile. It has been awhile since we danced, sang and laughed until the wee hours of the morning, I have missed you so much and now I will miss you forever.  Fly high sweet friend...heaven just welcomed a sweet sassy angel who can out sing them all. I love you forever and always. Dee"
