This morning, I attended a beautiful memorial service for Brennan Dougherty Hodges.  In Brennan's style, she organized and planned the entire event with some 250 family and friends in attendance.  She wanted the service on Saturday so one would not miss work.  Sounds like Brennan. 

Brennan was a great person to all and had a terrific personality.  My immediate memory is spending time at the pool at the Bristol Country Club and seeing her drive around in that yellow 442 oldsmobile cutlas.
