Aunt Glenda was an amazing and one of the hardest working women I have had to pleasure to know. I spent many weeks of summer vacation at her house in Seagoville. She was a wonderful cook and always had something on the stove that smelled great. I remember she would be trying to get Ronny ready for a baseball game while begging Pam and myself to please stop picking on Cindy, ironing clothes that someone was picking up after work and making sure Nanny Culver had enough medicine to last her for the next 2 weeks. I don't know how she did it, but never lost her since of humor. She loved to laugh and a cold washrag on your head cured everything. She made sure all the doors were locked at night so if anyone escaped the prison we'd all be safe. I have many great memories of you Aunt Glenda. I'm so glad you and Pam stopped by my office for a short visit earlier this year. I Love You Auto Glenda. My Love & Prayers to Sonny, Pam, Cindy & Bryan.

We will always remember Glenda as a lady who had a lot of love and courage. For years she had shown so much courage going from one crisis to another, and never lost her Faith in God. We will miss her and her inspirations. Jerry and I thank God for His promise of everlasting life and we know that Glenda is with Him now in peace and is pain free.

When I think of Glenda there are just so many fun memories that come to mind! Her laugh, her growl, (and we laughed), and her patience to listen to us at any time we needed her and then to offer up great advice always ending with a chuckle or two. Glenda was a Mom to a lot of us growing up together. The many nights she drove us to the rodeo, skating rink or just up to Griffs on Buckner then cruised while we waved out the window! Loved Glenda bunches and was saddened she had suffered. But glad she is pain free now and waiting in Heaven with Ronny for Heaven to call more of his Angels. Love you Pam. Prayers & Hugs to you, Cindy & Brian and to your families.
