  2. Glenna and I were old school friends from elementary school through high school. We had lost touch but in the last few months talked frequently and I was able to visit with her recently. She was such a fighter and I am so sorry for the loss of wife, mother, grandmother and sister to everyone. She was especially proud of Rachel. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone.

  3. Glenna was my sister’s mother-in-law. When my son spent the night with her, they would visit Glenna. He couldn’t say her name, so he called her Aunt B. Our hearts and prayers go out to all of the family. I know you are watching over all of us. We will truly miss you Aunt B.

  9. I have got to spend alot of precious time with my Aunt Glenna, we enjoyed spending time together, talking about soap operas, old times and just life. I will never forget her laugh and her smile. And most of all I will never forget the hard fight that she fought. I had the pleasure of taking her to get her hair done, so she could feel pretty and she did. I will never forget her. I love you Aunt Glenna.

  14. Dear Keith: My first wife, Vivian, and I were good friends with your Mom and Dad about the time you were born. Vivian and Glenna worked together. Your Mom and Dad and Vivian and I went to the old Nashville Club on Sweeten Creek Road back in the 70s and 80s and had some good times dancing and carrying on. Oh, to be young again. I have special memories of those days with your folks. I am very sorry about your loss. I lost both of my parents recently. I have walked that road, too. I thought the world of your parents. My deepest sympathy.

  15. Jerry, Keith and family,

    I have known Glenna sense high school. We have had some great times together. We would all go to the lake, Keith, this was before you were born. She would come to my house and stay the night sometimes or I would go to her house. She was like a sister to me. We have had some wonderful times together and I will never forget them. We have even been know to take our puppies out for ice cream. I do not think I have fully come to terms, that she is not just a call away. I know I will see her again in heaven. God Bless.
