We were so very sorry to hear about Brenda. It has been a while since we saw her but she always loved "Chief Mac" and we loved her. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. She will be missed at the public events we always saw her at.

I’m so sorry to hear of Brenda’s passing! She was a really nice and funny woman! She always made me laugh when she came to the West Division and when I was at Central Division! She also was very talented in creating things like the Christmas ornaments that she had made to sell! I always think of her when I would hang them on my Christmas Tree! You will be truly missed my friend! Praying for the family that God will wrap his loving arms around y’all and bring comfort and peace during this difficult time!

Sincere condolences and prayers for Brenda’s family and friends. She will be missed in the community. I just talked to her recently, gone much too soon.

Brenda and I shared many laughs, mostly at Chuck and Kim’s expense, on our never ending campaign trail adventures. We ate too much barbecue and made sure there wasn’t any sauce on one another’s faces but often had to hide the stains on our blouses. She made everyone feel special and had a vibrant smile that went along with that mischievous personality. When Chuck passed she was a rock and I knew her faith would pull her through. Now her faith will open the gate to her new life and home. May God bless Brenda

I was so sad to hear the news about Brenda. She always had a smile and good advice for me over the years and she will be greatly missed. I admired her passion and hard work for the animals at the shelter and she was so proud when it was named the Chuck Silcox Animal Care and Control Shelter. I can imagine the reunion she and Chuck are having. I know how much she loved volunteering with citizens on patrol and always entertained me with her stories. My husband and I loved her wicked sense of humor and I have no doubt they are having a ball catching up. Brenda loved her family so much and I know she will be missed by many.

I am so sorry to hear of Brendas passing. I worked with her when I was working for OL Pitts. She was such fun in our building and I enjoyed her company so much. I’m so very sorry for your loss and so shocked to hear of her passing. Prayers for the family. God bless. ❤️

I had the pleasure of knowing you when I worked with the FWPD. You were always a person in the know land could be counted on for assistance. you cared deeply for your fellow human beings and your city.

I was just with Brenda a few days ago as FWPD honored her Mother. Brenda supported me in so many ways even helping me recruit Sandi Breaux to come back to City Hall and run the operations of my office as District Director. When I had a stroke in 2018, Brenda was the first to make it to the hospital. I miss her already, but I can just visualize her and Chuck flirting with each other again:-)

I will greatly miss Brenda. I have known her for almost 20 years and she was my friend. Most of all the dogs and cats of Fort Worth have lost a strong advocate and her presence at the Chuck Silcox shelter will be missed.
