Glenda and I met at UCM & graduated together. My late husband and I spent time with Glenda and Dean.. A wonderful couple devoted to each other. I spent several weekends with Glenda at her house. She was always fun and ready to go somewhere. Due to COVID restrictions, I was not able to visit her. Glenda is out of pain and is with the love her life. Rest in peace my dear friend.
