    Glenda was one of my best friends in high school. She sat right behind me in band, and we were in classes and the Purple Queens together. She was a bridesmaid in my wedding and a week later I was matron of honor in hers. So many fond memories we had together. She had 2 sons and I had 3 and grandchildren we loved to talk about. I am so sad but I know she is in Heaven, and because we both love Jesus we will see each other soon. Boys and all you grandchildren, love Jesus who loves you so much, and you will see your mom and grandmother soon.

    I first met Glenda at Dick Dowling Junior High. We were in the Band together under Don Knapp. She was always so full of life and a beauty for sure. I'm sorry I missed our 50th Reunion of BHS Class of 67.
    I also wish I would have stayed in the Band.....but ours years in the Band at Dowling were good ones. I will always remember you in your youth......with that Great Smile......BC

    Glenda and I met when working together for MTE way back. We did a little scrapbooking on Friday nights at times and became friends. She was a strong lady but I know she fought a good battle and is not suffering and longer. My prayers are with your family..
