Glenda was a very compassionate person who loved others unconditionally and brightened the room with her sense of humor and infectious smile. She exhibited these qualities with her family, friends, patients in emergency rooms and their families, and even to every little stray dog that happened to stop by her house.

We love and miss you, Glenda. Even though you have left us for now, it brings a smile to our face to know that you are no longer suffering with the physical afflictions that kept you in constant pain. We can visualize you now walking, talking and laughing with the Lord, Mom, Dad, Richard and other relatives and friends in heaven.
