  1. “She has left the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God.” I lost my brother to almost 30 years with MS. My heart and prayers go out to all those who loved her and will be touched by her life and courage forever.
    With prayers for peace. Ruth

  2. Dear Elva and Diane, So sorry for your loss. I live in San Antonio TX but saw the obit online. Many years have passed since we were neighbors. But I don’t forget nice people like you folks. Irene

  3. My sincere and deepest sympathy to the entire family. Seems like forever ago, we all lived quietly in Castlewood. I have many fond memories of Glenda (and the entire family). May you find comfort in knowing she is at peace with our Lord and His love for you as you
