    Frank, Donna and Frankie,

    As a child, I remember Glenna as glamour; lipstick smile and laughing eyes. If I sit in quiet, I can vividly remember sitting with her during one of your family visits as she demonstrated her ritual of applying lipstick. Such memories are little gifts for little girls.

    My thoughts and prayers are with each of you, always and especially now. I hope you find comfort, joy, love and laughter in all of the wonderful memories that I know you will continue to cherish.
    Much love to you all, Linda LaRosa-Mosner
