Anthony E. Bramble, 66, died at his home on Saturday December 12, 2009 several weeks after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

He has six brothers and sisters: Ray Bramble of Salem, SC; Stewart Bramble of Severna Park, Md.; Barbara Bateson of Livonia, MI; Marcenia Tate of Box Elder, SD; Eunice Grap of Jessup, MD; and Carolyn Bramble of Bumpass, VA. He was the son of Raymond and Elizabeth Bramble of Federalsburg, MD.

    It was a sad day for me Saturday when I heard Anthony had passed. I feel I have lost a friend since I coordinated anhhony's work schedule at Enterprise Rent-A-Car from his first day until I changed positions earlier this year. Anthony was a very likeable person and he was very dependable. Kathy I share the hurt you are feeling at this time. May God bless you is my prayer. Larry Horrell

    It has been a little over a week since Anthony passed and not a moment goes by that we sisters and brothers don't think about him and miss him. The ground is now covered with 16" of snow; fond childhood memories of us playing in the snow come drifting back. Merry Christmas, I love and miss you Anthony. RIP

    Dear Kathy, Nick and Claire, I am so sorry to learn of Anthony's passing. This was much too soon. He will be sorely missed, not only by you three, but by the legions of people who were lucky enough to have known him and shared his love of life and laughter. RIP Anthony. Marijke

    Dear Kathy, We were so sorry to read of Anthony's passing. It seems not that long ago you offered us words of comfort when we lost Russ. It's hard to believe it has been over 7 years. What goes around comes around I guess. I'm here to say - yes, life does go on - never the same -but you will get thru this - what choice do we have? It is thru the support of all these people who knew and loved Anthony and all your wonderful memories together that will help you remember him with a smile rather than with tears. It is now when you will be amazed to learn how many lives he has touched. Please know we are thinking of you and Nick and Claire. Give them our best and please feel free to get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you. Jim and Lyn Nicholson

    I am truly sorry for your loss. I used to work with Anthony at Enterprise Rent A Car and he was the type of guy who always made it a point to stop by my office just to say hello. He was a kind man who will be missed by many.
