We wish to extend our sympathy to the entire family of Glennie. We met her only once or twice. One thing we remembe is that she taught us the name of a plant that grew on the roadside near Moravia.

Paul, Phyllis, and Fonda, I am so sorry to hear of Glennie's passing. Mom and I had just spoke of her when I was home in March. What a wonderful life she had and what wonderful memories she left for so many. When I think of her it takes me back to all the wonderful times I spent at your home and her home and of course, basketball games. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
