  1. Glenda you possessed so many beautiful qualities. We were so fortunate to have known you for the time that we did darling! Love you!

  2. Glenda, you had become one of my very best friends. I would always tell you how beautiful you were. I can still hear your voice when I called, “hey Sylvia”. Our reunions, our Friday night dances, our times together will be so missed. And Jerry lost another dancing partner! We just loved you! Sylvia and Jerry Etter.

    We loved your mom and dad. Dick was in the Army with Jerry and kept in touch via mail from that time on. We visited your mom and dad just a few months before his death. We were so glad that we stopped on our way home from Arizona. We are so grateful for the wonderful times we had together at the Army reunions. We had so much fun together. We are broken hearted. Your mom was a beautiful woman inside and out. Gods blessing on the family.
