    I was saddened to hear about Brenda’s passing. I had the joy and honor of working with Brenda first at Cambridge Regional Center, then when the work level moved out east on 95 in Cambridge and became
    4 Star Products and Services. I remember all the fun we had making craft products to sell and putting together
    the 4 Star cookbook. She was such a gifted and talented person. All my thoughts and prayers are with her family.
