A wonderful light has moved on from this world to her next - and I sure will miss Brenda. Wonderful lady, always willing to help if humanly possible, and with a smile on her face. She was such a delight to work with at Sherrod, back in the day when we moved as a team, everyone was out for the best for the students and patron's we served! She has been missed at Sherrod for several years, and now will be missed forever. My thoughts are with the family, but especially with Sydney and Ava and those little ones that Tiki was so very dear to. Sending love and prayers for days to come.

I love working with Brenda when in the Army in Germany. She came over to my house and taught me how to make Divinity. She always shared her poptarts with me at work. A kind soul has left this Earth. Prayers for her family and friends.

Not sure I remember Brenda but did serve with sister Rhonda in Augsburg in the 80's. I offer my condolence to Rhonda, the Crawford family, and all of those effected by this unfortunate loss.

Brenda and I were classmates at Ft. Devens, and later served together in Augsburg where she and Glen were married. Lived near her in MD when Glen passed, and kept in touch with her over the years. She came up to our house in VA a number of years ago, to attend our annual Oktoberfest party. Carol and I will miss her greatly, and wish her family well.

So sad to here of Brenda's passing. I remember being in her 05D class but lost track of her after we all left Fort D. I will remember her as a wonderful person.

I worked with Brenda, and her husband Glenn, in Augsburg, Germany in the late 1970s and early 1980s. She was a wonderful lady.
