Brenda and I worked on the Vigor Hi Lights together calling on future advertisers in our school newspaper! She was always such fun to work with! My junior year and her senior year at Vigor! I will never forget how much fun she added to my day! She will be sorely missed! Her nickname was "Hay Hair" which fit her to a "Tee" Such memorable times! RIP, dear friend! Bonnie Smith
