Would someone kindly help me .. i have been searching for shirley & Brenda York . My mom was Marie & my grandpa was Harry Holbert of ross ohio. Shirley was Brenda's mom & Shirley had epilepsy. Brenda was a childhood friend & i have a picture of her. My Brenda had not as dark hair but it was very curly. My mom & shirley were friends . Possibly family . In my family tree searches i could never find either of them. If you know them personally , please forward this to the family. My condolences, i so wanted to find both of them much sooner. My mom died in 2009 & grandpa passed on as well. I am a c4 quadriplegic, forgive my errors please. Thank you & may all remember your Brenda as i do . Lisa

Hello my name is Barbara, l am one of Jehovah's Witnesses I am so sorry to read about the loss of your love Hello. Death is a very sad and hard time , Jesus felt the same way that's why he resurrected Lazarus back to the earth. Please read John 5 :28,29, here it speaks about the time when we will see our dead love ones again right here on earth. Please click the link and watch a short video that talks about the resurrection hope. You can also visit our website at JW.ORG. Thank You

Our prayers and condolences go out to the York Family. Brenda was always a kind person with a sweet demeanor. Even though we lost track of time through the years, whenever we would see each other she would always greet us with a smile and a hug. She will be missed! Heaven has gained another Angel.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My deepest and sincere condolences to Brenda’s family. I am so deeply saddened by her leaving. We attended JFK together. We sat together your last class reunion ( she attended all of them). I remember her beautiful smile. I also attended when she was inducted as President of the Black Realtors Association. I love her and will miss her. Rest in Peace my Sister!!!
