    Dear Abbey and Greg, Sara and Bretton
    I only met your Mom once but enjoyed her company a lot. It was at your house on the Friday night of the golf tournament. I am so sorry that you all have to go through this-it must be very difficult for you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Glenda was more of big sister than a cousin, she carried me home from my first drunk when she found me passed out in Auntie Rubies bathtub after Arlene and I decided Uncle Leo would not miss that bottle of wine. She is a big part of all my childhood memories. I send my sincere condolences to her daughters, to her grandchildren, her nieces, nephew’s, cousins and especially her sisters. you were loved Glenda and you will be missed beyond comparison to anyone who has travelled before you. I wish you Godspeed on your journey. thank you for touching my life, tell your Mom and Dad we say thank you for what you did for us. good bye friend. love Sharon

    Dear family of Glenda Rhodes. I am Carol Kuz of Winnipeg. Glenda’s father, Stanley Kuz and my father, Mike P Kuz were brothers born and raised at Fraserwood, Manitoba on the homestead to which their parents immigrated at the turn of the 20th century from Austria, now part of Ukraine. Geography kept us apart. From occasional contact with news of Glenda’s family was always shared. She was so proud of her family. Countless memories will help to sustain you at this very sad time. May she Rest In Peace as she is reunited with David, Uncle Stoshy and Aunty Ruby.

    So many miles apart . We are so sorry to hear of our dear cousin Glenda passing. We still have good memories when her whole family visited us at the store in Woodlands in the 60s. Our daughter Crystelle still recalls playing with Glenda on the visit at their early age. Our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
