We were saddened to learn of Glenda's passing. Like Barbara I remember the times that Mom would drive for hours to make sure we stayed in touch with family, now I look back and wish I had followed her good example of keeping my children in touch with our Murray roots. I wanted all to know that you have our condolences and prayers. Cousin Karen in Saginaw

It was such a blessing and honor to know her. I am so glad I was able to experience her wit, sassiness, and love for music. The other half of my heavenly duo is dancing with her beloved Buddy. Until we meet again oh my darlin, sweet Clementine, oh Susanna, Glenda Lou...I love you

Your Mama is in the sun rays, a soft breeze, the cool waters, she's everywhere and in your veins. I'm sure Buddy had his arms out to welcome her. Keep her alive by speaking her name and refreshing all the beautiful memories. Lifting you all. Love, Max and Mitzi Garner-Hughes
