I received a text shortly after 4 pm yesterday. A long time friend and very special lady made her final journey home. Glenda Roberts had been fighting Covid and pneumonia for a while.
Glenda was a dedicated Christian lady that always encouraged me. She loved her family and was so proud of them.
After Glenda’s children moved from Odessa I had the opportunity to take her to the doctor and hospital when she needed help. One particular time, while she was waiting for a procedure, I sat in the hospital holding area with her. We had a wonderful heart to heart conversation and she shared the ups and downs of her life. She was always very appreciative of anything we did to help her.
She was a classy dresser and had a smile that completed the package! As beautiful as she was, her inner beauty outweighed the rest by a long shot!
I am truly heartbroken that I wasn’t able to see her toward the end. I would have loved to hold her hands and pray just one last time!
I loved her dearly and will miss my friend and sister in Christ!
Rest in the arms of Jesus, Glenda! We will see you soon!
We spent many wonderful Wed mornings together studying God’s Word. I loved Glenda dearly and was so encouraged by her faith. I pray the Lord’s comfort and peace for her family – she loved you all so much.
