Brenda and James were happily married for 49 years. She loved the color purple and putting together puzzles and watching movies. She loved Elvis Presley’s music.

Every summer she looked forward to heading to Port Aransas. Her favorite things to do there were sitting on the balcony and watching the ships go in and out of the ship channel. She also loved riding the beach buggy on the shore of the beach as the sun set.

Her other favorite place to visit was Fredericksburg. She loved staying at a beautiful airbnb in the country there. She enjoyed watching the deer go by and doing some shopping.
