    Dear Alan,Jill, Lance, and Family, I am so sorry to hear of Glenda’s passing. When Bernie called me I was driving home from Florida after helping my daughter, Holly, and her family move into their new house. As I was driving I was thinking about the many fun summers we spent in Atlanta and Greensboro visiting the Goldstein relatives. Glenda was always a part of our memorable adventures. Glenda was blessed with a beautiful life and a precious family who took good care of her. Remember that the love she shared will live on in the many lives of family and friends she touched forever. Wishing comfort and peace for all the family. Keeping you all close in my thoughts and prayers.

    The legacy Glenda left is bright and shiny. Would have loved to have known her but I know her daughter and her granddaughter and the world is definitely a better place with those two in it. Thank you for sharing this.

    Alan and Kaplan family- so sorry to hear of Glenda’s passing. I am one of those “distant cousins” she kept in contact with. She was always one of my favorite of the Atlanta ladies-loving, generous and so very funny. We all loved her and she will be missed.

    Our most sincere condolences. Glenda was fun to be with and her dry sense of humor and banter with Alan was fun. When we were all more physically able, our "day trips" were filled with laughs.

    I’ve had the pleasure of caring for Glenda for the last 2 years. She was such a great pleasure and funny lady. She was vivacious and loving. She loved her family greatly and would light up when speaking about them. She liked to tease her husband Alan almost daily just because she could. She was a very strong character in her heart and soul and to her last moment her grace and dignity shined brightly. I’m very blessed to have known her. My heart and thoughts are with Alan, Jill, Lance and her granddaughters during this time.

    A bonus from being Lance's roommate years ago was getting to know Glenda very well. I was new to Atlanta but her concern and kindness helped make my adjustment that much easier. I will never forget her. Thinking of the entire family during this difficult time.
