Glenna loved fishing trips, camping, and cooking a huge feast on the holidays. You never left her house with an empty belly, without getting a hug and a kiss, and without hearing her telling you, “I love you.” We all have so many great memories of her. The family can only hope that Glenna is now with her children that have passed and her husband Boo doing the thing she loved most, fishing. 

Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again.
