    I remember Glenda as a sweet gal who I loved being around as a child and as a married lady, going to Church with. She had to work every other Sunday and she was sure missed that Sunday she worked. My late husband and I used to visit them on Michigantown Blacktop. She is with Rex now. Prayers for her family.
