Glynnie could truly light up a room! When she walked in a room, people were excited to see her and the anticipated joy of getting to visit with her. I've seen it happen many times over the years and I've been the lucky recipient of her warmth and affection. When you spoke with Glynnie, you were aware that others wanted her attention, but she spoke with you like you were the only one in the room. She radiated love.

We knew both Gene and Glynnie for years as members of Rio Rancho Country Club. They were warm, friendly, dear people who will be greatly missed. The biggest consolation is that Glynnie and Gene are now together, which is how they always wanted to be. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family.....

Glynnie was the warmest person, with the biggest heart. Goosie made everyone feel like family and her passing has left a huge emptiness in my heart. GOD Bless you and Gene, Goosie. I miss your smile. My heartfelt condolences to the family.

I think all of us who knew and loved Glynnie, now know a part of the profound grief that she felt after she lost Gene. I hope there is comfort for her family that through Glynnie and Gene's faith that now she is with Gene and maybe that loss for her is at last healed. I hope that soon the wonderful memories of her contributions to all of our lives will replace the loss we all now feel.

My heart will always have a part with Glynnie's name on it--she was a human treasure. May her love and wonderful memories allow you to endure your loss. Sincerely, Ron Morgan

Larry & I spent many happy hours together with Glynnie & Gene listening to string quartets on shared cruises. She was a beautiful, graceful, and adorable person, and she loved Gene so very much. My favorite memory of Glynnie is from a gathering where Gene was asked to sing "Danny Boy," which he did well and often. When he began to sing, Glynnie rolled her eyes, and said "Gene" with such love and affection.

Glynnie leaves me with memories that warm my heart and make me value life just for having known her. I will miss her but I take comfort in knowing that her and Gene are back together again.

I did not know Glennie long or well but such was her capacity of warmth It feels as if we had known one another forever.

We played bridge together last Monday and when I remarked that my mind had gone on vacation she replied that hers had also and that she thought they were together on a beach somewhere !

She was a delightful lady, a worthy competitor, and I will miss her greatly.
