Glenna Furrell

Carla, Glenna & Gayla, My deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. There will always be wonderful memories of the visits as a child. The carnation farm near your childhood home, the peonies around the front porch, and going to the car races at the i-70 speedway.
