  1. Dear Tim and Family,
    When my son died a few years ago, I enjoyed hearing about memories people had of him, large or small. This is my memory of Glenda. She was always so kind and sweet to us when we came to visit the river. She seemed to have a loving spirit which made me feel very calm and comfortable to be around her and I can’t say that about everyone I have met in my life and not everyone has a natural ability to affect another person in such a positive way. The last time I saw her she gave me a hug, we had a few pleasant words and I walked away thinking “what a nice lady she is”. It was only a few moments, but when they are spent with someone like Glenda, they are not forgotten.
    God Bless and love to all,
    Shirley Byrne

  2. After spending these few days with your wonderful family, I can see how much Glenda meant to you. I am sorry for your loss. I know she is in a better place and that your love for each other will get you through. Thank you for letting me hang out and help out. Tim, Randall, Darla and Geena I am sorry glad to have met you. May God bless you and comfort you in this trying time. To Lisa, I will always be there for you.

  3. My deepest condolences to Red, Randall, Darla and Geena. Glenda always seemed to bring a smile into a room wherever she went. She also had a great sense of humor that made her that much more lovable. Take comfort knowing that she is in better place now and would want you all to keep a smile on your face till we see her again. May God bless you.
    To the Oliver family, my thoughts and prayers are with you as well. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family and for knowing Glenda (and Carol). It has been such an honor for me and I will cherish those memories always.
    Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. (Matthew 5:4)
