Blette, of Whitinsville; a daughter, Theresa- Marie Senecal, and her husband, Blaine, of Manchaug; and four grandchildren, Catelyn, Joseph, Jayde, and Shyan.

To the Blette & Senecal Families,

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Brenda was one of the kindest, most generous people I know and my life is better for having known her. I will miss her sense of humor, our suppers at Jube's, but most of all her unconditional friendship.

I knew Brenda when I was in junior and senior high school. She lived down the street and we "hung out" often after school. My memories of her include a great laugh and lots of fun. I have thought of her often throughout the years, and am so sorry that she was so ill. Rest in peace, thoughts of you will always bring a smile to my face!

Dear Teri and family,
There is no greater loss for a daughter than to unexpectedly lose her Mom. Ecclesiastes chapter 3:1-8, All things have their season, and in their times all things pass under heaven. Teri, Mom is smiling down on you because a Mother's love is forever.

Dear Don and Family ~

Please accept our condolences on Brenda's passing.
We are sad that she suffered and has passed but know that she is at peace now.
I remember her from childhood on Brook Street in Whitinsville when she lived down the street and was a pal to my older brother and sister. She was always so pretty and happy and fun to be around. It was great to work with Don and have Don and Brenda's children in school; it was easy to see how much Mark, Joey, and Terri were loved.
The memory of Brenda will always bring admiration, respect, and a smile.
May God bless you all.
Donald and Jeannie Carr Katz

Dear family of Brenda,
My condolences on your loss.
I wish to share comfort from the Bible at this sad time.
The Bible teaches that one day in the near future our Creator, Jehovah God, by means of the ransom sacrifice of his son, Jesus,will reunite us with our dead loved ones by means of a resurrection right here on earth in paradise conditions that will be filled with peace, happiness, and perfect health for everyone. (John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:9-11,29; Isaiah 33:24)
As you read the above texts from your Bible, may the wonderful hope they give us, along with loving memories bring you a measure of comfort during this most difficult time.
There is much Bible-based comfort to be found on the website
Sincerely dianne mullins

A lively spirit has moved on; her friends and family feel an empty space in their lives. From her earliest years, Brenda was not a person to go unnoticed. From one of the prettiest girls at Saint Pats, she grew into a beautiful woman. No one could have loved her family more, and she delighted her many friends right to the end. She has disappeared from our sight, but not from our hearts. We love you and miss you, Brenda. May peace come to your family in its appointed time.

Don, We had heard Brenda was real sick at the end so it wasn't a surprise when we got the word. No more suffering. I am so sorry I could not make the funeral as my pulmonary problems hold me back from doing a lot of things. So many memories of Brenda from skating on the frog pond when we were kids to graduation at NHS Class of 1962. Have a lot of great memories of you to my friend. Stay strong and know a lot of people are thinking of you & your family.
