i know I've posted several times on the board u all forgive me but need share my thoughts with someone.
Aunt Glenda few days after ur funeral and I hear it was beautiful. I miss u so much already. Hard to stop thinking of you and want to pick up the phone and call you. U been a part of my life 63 years and that never changed. U took care of me when I was little when my parents worked and I know as well as rest of your family how much u missed dad. I know u two were always close and was always there for each other. I was just thinking of you this morning and some how needed to reach out and this is only way I could figure. The sadness and grief over ur loss has taken a tremendous toll on me as I know it has others. U were the last of our older family and tried hold us all together and I hope we can continue. Those I don't have phone numbers and talk to I could always talk to u and find out what was going on with the family. A piece of my heart is gone but so glad ur with the family you missed so much and so glad ur at peace and don't suffer no more and it was quick. We miss u Aunt Glenda 🌹 so much. While your family maybe a little selfish sometimes to keep you little longer we also knew u were worn out and struggled hard to.keep.going to be with us long as you could but know in our hearts this was best for you. U will be tucked in my heart as u will many of us until the day I pass and can see u again..all my love ur niece.

My dearest grandma. I cant explain the shock I still feel at the fact you are gone. Goes to show we never know what tomorrow will bring and we all need to cherish each day. I will forever remember coming to visit you and and getting cards from you for every single holiday. Boy how I will miss that. The girls greatly enjoyed talking to you on the phone and I deeply regret I did not find the time to get casen here to meet you. I always said I will get there not knowing how limited my time was to do just that. I love and miss you so very much. Fly high my beautiful grandma and keep watch over us all. I know you are enjoying your time with grandpa and Billy right now. We will grieve our loss and embrace the fact that you are pain free and Heaven gained a beautiful angel. I LOVE YOU.

Pretty lady, you will be missed greatly. Heaven gained another angel when you left us. I loved to see you singing at church and see you praising Jesus. I missed you when you were not there. I will always remember you because you were always so sweet to me. Heaven truly gained a beautiful angel.

What My Aunt Meant to Me

Aunts have no wands or wings,
So they work with wisdom, love, and things.
Having taken on this role,
You loved me right down to my soul.

You offered kindness
And greetings with a hug and kiss,
Each freely out of love which I will miss.

I chose a twinkling star in the sky at night ,
To say a prayer for you to it’s bright light.
You’re in God’s Heavens now and no longer in pain,
In my thoughts, you’ll always remain

How lucky I was,
How blessed I’ve been,
You were more than my Aunt,
You were also my friend.

I love you and miss you Aunty Rose

My dearest Aunt Glenda words can't express how much I will miss you. I've wanted so long to see you. U loved us all so much. Our long talks on the phone of those we loved, those still living and those already gone. The words of wisdom u always shared with me and felt I could talk to u about anything. You were more than an aunt to me and more to me than a mom cause you knew more about me even than my mom. It hurts to loose u but knowing how u suffered gives me some peace and know how much u missed Uncle Bobby, your baby boy gone way to soon, ur brothers and sisters and ur parents. Now u have to suffer no more what a celebration I know u are all having together. U did so much to keep up with us all and were so much to all of us. Not just ur children and grandchildren and greats but ur nieces and nephews too. U checked on and worried about us all. I will miss our talks, we laughed together and often cried together and ur cards many of which I've kept for years. My heart goes out to all my family who I know u left a piece of you with but you also have left a little hole in our hearts. We take peace though in knowing ur not suffering anymore. We LOVE AND MISS YOU! You are one of a kind Aunt Glenda Rose.

Just wanted to tell you that you were the best mother anyone could ask for or want. Your love was unconditional and never ending, no matter what. This happened so fast we're all still in disbelief and shock. Although we know you are in a pain free world with happiness all around it doesn't make it any easier, I guess that comes with time. We'll continue to muddle our way through this and with help from our church family and friends, hopefully we will make it. Be good up there I'll see you soon and know that you will forever be my girl.
