My daughter called me, today, to tell me one of her best friends had been murdered in Polson. Why is it that I can find no story about it? Seems that the murdered person was a well liked lady who drove taxi in Polson. Perhaps someone could check into this story.

Brenda Francis was a very good, long time friend of mine and I found out what happened through a mutual friend. She occasionally drove taxi for her brother's taxi business. Brenda has suffered from schizophrenia for most of her adult life, as do her two children. The news I got was that Brenda was killed allegedly by her own son Brandon when he cut his Mother's throat either Friday night or Saturday morning. No one has all of the specifics just yet because this whole thing is still under investigation.

It's been confirmed that Brenda's son Brandon has been charged with his Mother's murder. Brenda's brother, Dennis Orr will have to sell Brenda's Harley Davidson motorcycle to pay for her funeral. Other family members from Minnesota are on their way to Montana for the funeral. Brenda was a woman who touched alot of people's lives and was VERY well known in the sober community in St. Paul, Minnesota. The news that Brandon killed his Mother has been devastating to me as I've known her kids since they were little. Rest in Peace my dear, dear little sister.......Scary

Rest in Peace Brenda, we'll never know what could have been. It was great knowing you and your friends in Minnesota have been informed and will never forget you either. Ride to Live, Live to Ride my friend. I rode up from Colorado to be at Brenda's funeral and was touched by all the people at the church who loved her. I broke down twice on the way back and slept on the side of the highway in Wyoming, but I'd do it all over again for Brenda. RIP
