Messages for the Family

  1. Kaye Allison says:
    I am so sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, mother-in-law and friend. Glenda was a friend and neighbor of my mother for a couple of years. It was with sadness that she had to move due to Alzheimer’s. Her daughter Jackie Davenport, my friend was so good to her mother visiting her everyday and taking her grandchildren to see Glenda. I pray God gives you all the strength you need to get through these next few months. Love to you all.
