  3. Glenda was a real giving individual. From what I was told coupled with what experienced first hand, she was one of the most selfless people I’ve ever met. People always throw around and reuse local terminology like "spitfire"… But i prefer to account for that behavior and attitude as spirit. She loved her family unconditionally, and no matter what adversity lay before her she would prevail. Giving is what she did. You couldn’t argue or say no thank you because she would be certain you’d leave with plenty to eat. Always thinking of others, never herself. It was my great pleasure to have known Glenda. Finding strength in knowing she loved completely makes saying good bye easier because she never made anyone lucky enough to know her feel any less than that. Being determined to learn from what she tought us, and to utilize that love to live a full and rich life is how we honor her efforts and hard work. Because goodbye is temporary, we remember her fondly, with appreciation, respect and in that way the memories will always stay with us. Thank you Glenda for the love you showed Everett, Amy and Myself. You will be missed.


    I am so sorry to read of your loss. Just think of the happy prospect that the promise of the resurrection hope has for those who are asleep in death. To be able to see them again here on earth, is a wonderful thing that is going to happen. So very soon Jehovah God has promised to do away with death. Ps. 37:29.

  5. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Miss Glenda was one strong lady. She will be missed.
