Brenda and I became friends in 7th grade.... she was always popular and outgoing.  It was such a shock to hear of her death.  So very young and a up and coming star.... may she continue to rest in peace...

This is a photo she gave me in 7th grade....  we were in Homeroom together.

Brenda was always to much fun to be around.   We all knew that she would go into acting after high school.  I went to her wedding when she married Paul Peterson, but lost contact with her shortly after that.  When I lived in the Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles 1969-1988, the lady that did my nails would personally go to Brenda's home (as she would many stars)  to do her nails ... back then nails were of china porcelain, not acrylic like today.  

Brenda ... We miss your laugh and smile.
