I met Glenda through Zonta and Palm Beach State College. What a beautiful soul. We have kept in touch even after I retired from the college. She will be missed by so many.

Judy and I heartily agree with your praise of Glenda. I always experienced her as a beautiful person, inside and out. She was intrinsically kind, thoughtful and sensitive. Glenda had terrific style, composure and dignity. Her work with Zonta Deerfield Beach tells all of us about her values and social commitments.

Most importantly, Glenda was so supportive of you without being overbearing or solicitous. I'm sure there were times when she was entitled to get frustrated with you but my hunch is she never did. You could not have had a better partner and cheerleader.

Judy and I shall surely miss her.

Best Blessings, Howard and Judith Weiner

I will remember our luncheons at Max’s Grille. No subject was too big or too small for Glenda. We resolved the world’s problems from politics and religion to fashion and family over our 2 hour lunch. I with my New York obstinacy. Glenda with grace, kindness, and generosity.
My thoughts and prayers to Chuck and family.

Sending love, thoughts and prayers remotely from your Michigan family. My Aunt Glenda was so many things, a savvy business woman, gracious host, and a classy lady through and through! She’s the only woman I knew that could turn a hospital gown or a hard hat and jeans into a fashion statement! Aunt Glenda took genuine interest in everyone she came in contact with making them feel comfortable and valued. She truly loved her life in Florida and often referred to it as “never a dull moment’. How could it me when your married to such a wonderful and adventurous man as my Uncle Chuck, aka the Energizer Bunny. Although I will miss her deeply I find comfort in knowing she had a full, exciting and blessed life! Love to you all💕

Although I only met Glenda a few years ago, I will dearly miss her kind spirit. My favorite memory of her is of Chuck trying to get Glenda to do physical therapy in the pool. They were very funny and so sweet to each other. I will miss her and my heart goes out to Chuck and the rest of her family and friends.

My heartfelt condolences to you and your family Sue. I always held your mom in high esteem. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. I remember going out to eat after a performance we did together in high school. Your parents treated us, they were great fun. As you go through your grieving remember how much you loved her and she loved you. ❤️My love to you.

I met the Lasers two years ago and from the very beginning it was easy to see the deep love Chuck and Glenda have for each other. Looking at the pictures is plain to see what a wonderful woman Glenda was, how lucky is Chuck for having her on his side all these years. Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

Glenda was a very fine lady who was able to draw a smile in everyone's face. She could have a conversation with any kind of people, which is just a sign of how special she was.

I'm going to miss her very much but I will always remember in presence, not in absence.
