Glenda was a great friend we had known each other since the Golden days and then we ran into each other again in Eagle County.
I began working in the sheriff's office in 1980 and been there a year when Brad and Glenda began there prestigious positions.

The following years were just wonderful getting to know Glenda all over again and learning about Brad. Both have been very gracious and loving to me and my son Craig.

Our prayers are with Brad and family.
Love forever friends
Georgia, Ralph and Craig

I met Brad and Glenda Jones when my wife and I were volunteers for their community’s local rodeo and I interviewed Brad for a history of the rodeo I was working on with my wife’s help. For a long time Brad continued the Jones family tradition of community service and support of the rodeo following in the footsteps of his father Sherman “Casey” Jones, a respected community leader. I wanted that to be recognized in the rodeo’s history. Glenda’s extensive family archives helped us fill in the holes in my narrative and gave us the information we needed to tell a complete story about the rodeo’s early history.

Glenda’s extensive family archives also made another story possible that I wanted to put together for the Jones Family. The story was about Brad’s great grandfather Albert H. Jones who was the Brigadier General of the Colorado National Guard and a U.S. Marshal for the Colorado District in the late 1880s, and a close friend of Buffalo Bill Cody. Glenda felt a special kinship with “The General’s” wife Isadore who kept her own extensive archives of her husband’s life and career. I remember Glenda talking about what a remarkable woman Isadore was and how much she admired her.

Over the years our acquaintance with Brad and Glenda stretched beyond our rodeo volunteer years and they became very good friends. Every time we walked in their front door we got a hug from Glenda and she always asked how we were doing, more interested in talking about us than about herself. That is one of the many things we loved about Glenda. She cared about others. And we loved that warm smile and that sparkle in her eyes. John and Margo Goetz

Although I was in Glenda's company just a handful of times, notably, on trips to Black Hawk with my mom, Sheri and Brad, she was always such a delight! A sweet lady with a smile at the ready! Dear family, please know that Greg, my mom, Polly, and I share in your loss.

Glenda was an amazing woman whom I loved dearly. I worked with Brad at Saguache County. One year Glenda decided she wanted to go to The Ozarks but needed help convincing Brad. I started leaving little notes on Brad's desk like "Ozarks or Bust" and making comments like "the Ozarks would be the perfect place to vacation". With Glenda and I bombarding him, Brad finally gave in. Glenda got her trip to the Ozarks. When they returned, Brad admitted it was one of the best vacations they had taken. Of course, we all know Brad loved Glenda to the moon and back, he would do anything to make her eyes sparkle with joy. Glenda loved Brad to the moon and back also. They were a match made in heaven. Look in the night sky for the brightest star, that is Glenda watching over all that she loves. My love to Brad, Sherry and Gary.
