Gary, I was so sad to see that your sweet mother had passed away. This must be so hard for you to lose them both in a fairly close time. Bob's daughter, Michele is in the hospital after having her pancreas removed or I would have sent this sooner. I would have loved to have attended the service but this same situation prevented me from coming. I was very fond of Glenda and can only imagine how much you will miss her.

Much love,

Gary you do not know me but I was a neighbor to your parents when they lived on East Avenue in Austin. You were a baby when we moved to Arlngton. Unfortunately we lost contact with one another after several years. I pray for peace and comfort for you and the family upon Glenda's passing. God bless you.

I am so sorry to hear of 'Aunt Glenda's' passing. She was always a sweet lady to me and had a knock-out smile, and a great personality to go with it. I know she will be greatly missed. Sending my love and prayers to you Gary, and the whole family. Mary

I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with Glenda for many years at Children's and she was more than a coworker, she was a friend. A true Southern lady, she could tell it like it was in the kindest way you could imagine. She had a great sense of humor and also a great sense of right and wrong. Gary, you were the light of her life and I always enjoyed her stories about you and your dad. I will always remember your mom.
