    To Glenda’s loving family,
    I want to send all my love and sympathy. Glenda was a dear childhood friend and neighbor. I am so glad I came to the Wildwood Reunion this year to spend time with the Green girls, I told my husband that next time I could skip the reunion and just spend time with the Green girls. Glenda always made everyone feel so happy and she was always smiling. Glenda will be missed by many. My heart breaks for all of you. Be reassured that one day you will be reunited.
    Knowing Glenda she would want all to celebrate her life and hold all the good memories close. She will always be in our hearts, but now soaring with the angels.
    Deepest heartfelt sympathy to all of Glenda’s family.

    Dear Green family, I am saddened to hear about Glenda’s passing. I contacted her last spring about seeing her this fall. I am so sorry I waited so long. Glenda was my best childhood friend and she was a bridesmaid in my wedding. We have not seen each other in almost 40 years and I am so sorry about that. I wish I could be there but I am out of town visiting my daughter. Love to you all. Karen
