    She will be forever missed. She was beautiful inside and out. Always a giving person. I just saw her recently and she was buying candy for the Amish children. We would always reminisce about how her and I were the two strong women who pulled out the old floor boards in Sue and Skamp’s living room when they were remodeling their home. I would always say I hope I am as strong as you are when I am your age! I will truly miss running into her at Walmart and having our little chats. So sorry for your loss.

    I was deeply saddened to learn of Mrs. Brennan’s passing. Many fond memories cake to my mind when looking back on my childhood and visiting the Brennan home with Cathy. I was always welcomed with such a beautiful smile and welcoming hug. She and Mr. Brennan can be very proud of the family they raised together and the memories they created for their family along with us kids of Ogdensburg. Remember the good times and know she is resting with our Heavenly Father and will remain in many hearts forever.

    Duck, Cathy and all in the family: There are no words to describe how sad I feel that you have lost an absolutely loving and most compassionate and accepting woman I have ever known. She was a dear friend and a 2nd mother to all of us when we were kids. She knew how to make us feel so loved and wanted. She was a blessing in so many ways! I know that you will miss her every day for the rest of your lives. My thoughts, prayers and heart are with all of you during these hard and sad days, and the days moving forward from here. Much love to you all.
