    Our family has lost a true treasure. Aunt Glenna’s kind and gentle nature made her a wonderful, patient teacher and we are all blessed to have known her. Our loving thoughts go out to our Uncle Doug and the rest of the family during this difficult time. We have such fond memories of us all gathering in Mount Jackson at Granny’s house and sharing songs, stories and tales of dog shows. She has left a loving legacy that will never be forgotten.
