    I have known Glenda for as long as I can remember. She has always been so kind and sweet to me. Her and I have had many long conversations messaging each other back and forth. I remember years ago when she was talking about a Pandora bracelet, how she wished she could have one, so I sent her one with an angel charm on it and she was so happy to have that bracelet. I told her the angel was to always watch over her. Later she sent me a niece charm back that I will keep close to my heart. She told me that although I was really not her niece she loved me as one and that will always mean a lot to me. Prayers for her husband Steve and all of her family, she will be greatly missed.
