Glenda . . . a dear friend and neighbor. Always to be admired as a kind and gentle woman of faith who loved to make a difference in the lives of others. Praying for Ken and family during this difficult time for the peace that comes from the God of hope. It was such a pleasure to be a co-visitation ministry partner with this great lady. Her love and commitment to that ministry(and the many others she gave herself to) was very evident. Her example of grace and perseverance through her illness was a beautiful example of steadfast faith. She was healed, and is now in her Heavenly home, and has left a legacy for all of us.

I met Glenda when we sang together in choir at First Baptist Church Plant City. She was the sweetest, most gentle soul I've ever met. I truly cherish the time I knew her. My deepest sympathies to the family. She will be missed by so many, but we know where she is now. RIP

To know Glenda is to love Glenda. She was such a gracious lady and very loving. She was so thankful for all the cards and notes. She will add a beautiful flower to the masters bouquet. We will miss her dearly but she is not suffering to breath any more. She also was very loving and attentive to her husband Ken. You could see the love they had for one another. God bless you Ken.
