  1. I have such fond memories of being part of Mrs Brenner’s daycare. She took such good care of us. We would play all kinds of educational games and she would instill morals and manners. We were always taking a field trip somewhere like Wadsworth Falls and the dinosaur museum and candy cane Park. She’d always cook best nutritious meals and if it was a sandwich on the go it would most likely be bologna with ketchup always wrapped in wax paper. She will be missed.
