    Please accept my condolences for your loss. Losing a loved one is very distressing. Please find comfort in reading Gods word at John 5:21,28,29 and Revelation 21:4. My prayers are with you at this time.

    Gary Lee,
    I sincerly want to thank you and your family for taking care of Glennie, especially during her time of need. There are really no words to convey how wonderful all of you are. Your love and care for Glennie is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,

    My heart goes out to your family. Glennie was an amazing woman that always knew how to make a person smile. I’ll never forget the fudge she would make every year for Christmas or the fudge she made a couple of weeks ago(she was a strong and courageous woman). She was truly a special and will be greatly missed.

    Gary & Ronda Stewart
