    Brenda and family.
    I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Fenuks passing. I will always remember Mrs. Fenuk as a wonderful mother of my childhood best friend. She was a very caring and loving person. She will certainly be missed. I have many fond memories including her attendance at my wedding.

      Thank you Hattie & Sheila, It is so true how life can be taken away in a moments breath. I never thought this would be happening, we were very close and went out quite a bit, I am having trouble accepting this as she was everything to me. My mother was so healthy. Would love to meet both of you. Please e-mail me.
