    Uncle Don, Lenna, Gerald, Priscilla and Families
    What a great picture of Aunt Glenna. She always had that great big smile each and every time we would meet her. Lately it almost seemed bigger than she was. When ever I think of her, the following words always come to my mind: kind, loving, caring, giving of herself to who ever needed anything. I think she would rather do for others than take care of herself.
    She was always so proud of her children and grandchildren and had lots of stories with such joy on her face with each and every word she told.
    Uncle Don you were always the love of her life and you made her the person she was. Your wit, great sense of humor was always something I looked forward to each and ever time we would meet. Even when you referred to us 5 girls as the boys.
    I am glad you were able to have your adventure to West Papua. You will have experienced many lasting memories of that trip and she was so looking forward to it.
    Aunt Glenna is now in Heaven with Gramma & Grampa Miller, Aunt Beulah, Aunt Eleanor, Dad and Aunt Gerry and they are all getting caught up. She is in good hands.
    Thinking of you all and wishing I could be there to give you all a big hug and kiss.
    Lots of Love Donna, Kelly and Marty

    Dear Don, and family,
    We are grieving with you in the loss of your dear wife and mother/grandmother. WHAT an amazing life she lived with hundreds and hundreds of lives impacted by her life for Jesus. I can only imagine the reception she received in heaven. We’re so glad she got to take that trip back to say “good-bye” to the Ibele (and other Papuan) people where she dedicated so much of her life and talents to extend the Kingdom of God. Only eternity will tell the “rest of the story,” as we lay our crowns at Jesus’ feet! May HE comfort your hearts and fill your souls with fond remembrances of the tiny little lady with the expansive heart! LOVE! Jim and “D”

    Dear Uncle Donovan, Cousins Gerald, Lenna & Priscilla, spouses and grandchildren – my heart goes out to you at this moment in time but in a good way. A great time of rejoicing in knowing where our loved ones are. Remembering wonderful times of togetherness as y’all came into their lives and would come east to the farm to visit… time passed and our Charity was part of the gathering adding another story (what joy and laughter). Now, Aunt Glenna and Charity will be sharing their life experiences as only they can (it’s a gift you know) making heaven radiant with awe. You are blessed to have such a legacy of memory in the woman of God – wife, mother and grandmother – Missionary “Glenna”. She will be missed greatly – WE WILL SEE HER AGAIN!

    We are so sorry for the passing of Glenda. May the Lord be your encouragement and strength during this time.
    We remember our first visit to Wamena and Sina’ma. You gave us two “sweet” oranges. What a shock to find they were very sour oranges.
    The Lord bless you.

    Dear Don and Family,
    Please accept my sympathy in your loss of Glenna. Our history goes back a long way and I have only pleasant memories of her. It is hard to say goodbye to our loved ones but the Lord is our comfort at such times.
    It is not that long ago when Les Harris gave the phone to me so I could have a chat with you. Now both Les and Glenna have gone on to heaven. May our Lord comfort and bless you in these days as you adjust to the single life. He does promise to be our companion.
