    Brenda was our real estate agent when we moved to Alexander County in 2006. She worked hard to help us find our property. I enjoyed chatting with her over the years whenever I’d see her at her work at Wal-Mart or at the Times. She always asked about our family and I know her family was important to her, as well. We are praying for you.
