While we only had the privilege of knowing Glenda for a little over a year, her joy of living and enjoying her family and friends was very evident. We are so looking forward to that joyful reunion with her when Jesus comes back to claim all who are his. Then we'll have plenty of time to get to know one another more. And maybe play some more games?
