The "bitter-sweet" element, of a loved one's passing, is not always the case. I've officiated a few memorials where there are no "sweet" memories, and no one finds it "bitter" that their family member passed on. Glenda's "relocation" is genuinely bitter-sweet to me... "Bitter" because: I'll have to wait until I too get "home" to heaven to hear Glenda's rendition of the song, ME & MY ARROW (her re-write: ME & MY ALYN). Our last remaining family (i.e.- Billie & me) matriarch has relocated. "Sweet" because of: fond memories like sipping iced tea on Yukon Dr. (Glenda with a cup of coffee) with Bibles open, and talking about Jesus and His Word. her gifts to me, like welcoming me to her family, and ultimately the gift of her daughter, my bride, Billie. the assurance of knowing she is no longer trapped in a broken body, but now basking in the presence of the Lord who loves her more than all of us combined. "See you soon Glenda..."

My aunt Glenda was a wonderful wonderful woman who I'm going to miss so very much I love you aunt Glenda may you meet your brother and sister in heaven .
My 'Portamom' was a great blessing to me, especially when I was a babe in Christ. We loved listening to the Imperials and it still makes me smile. We also had many talks about my family. She was responsible for me opening my heart to my own mother, to whose love I had been closed for most of my life. Thank you, Glenda. My memories of her home on Yukon Dr. In Huntington Beach were that the walls seemed bathed in love. My wonderful wife, Julie, has many strengths attributable to her mom as do her other brothers and sisters, whom I all love. I will miss you for now, Glenda, but as we both know, it won't be long... When we get home, our eternal home, there'll be no more sick and dying, no one is sad, no one is alone, and there will be no more crying. For He will wipe away every tear from His children's eyes, and put a smile upon their faces. What a happy day when we see our Lord in paradise crowned as King of Kings...

I can only imagine the joy your having right now. You and I have been through a lot since 1956 and I will miss you so much on this earth but will see you soon in heaven

Dear Grandma, Your life touched many people. You had the ability to make so many feel so special and loved. I will always cherish the memories of us together. I loved spending time with you, and always felt like we were kindred spirits. I felt like you always understood. Some of my favorite memories are of us cuddling, you were always so warm, soft and safe, and of you making me my favorite bean soup, and of course when you took care of me with the chicken pox. You always had otter pops and oreos, and oreos were my favorite (and not in my house.) I love you so much and will miss you everyday until I see you again. Will All My Love, Your Tanana
