So sorry about your loss; Glenda was a dear friend of mine for many years. I know that God is rejoicing today to have Glenda by His side; she is no longer in pain nor suffering, what a Blessing that is for you. She fought a long and hard battle, but now she is in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father in all His comfort. Take care and God Bless you. Love, Linda Lever
