|She shall live on in our hearts and minds until that glorious day of reunion!|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Glenna Scribner who was born on September 29, 1929 and passed away on October 11, 2010. We will remember her forever.
I have been thinking a lot about you lately. As I grow up and start new chapters in my life I am constantly reminded of the memories I was able to share with you. Though you were only in my life for a short 12 1/2 years, you are forever in my heart as I continue to mature. I am now 18 years old, about to turn 19 in April. So much has changed in the 6 years you have been gone including me currently attending college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. Can you believe that your youngest grandchild is a freshman in college?! I talked to Grandpa on his 87th Birthday this past week, and oh how I miss him dearly, but at least I know I will be able to hug him soon, unlike with you, I might have to wait years upon years to feel your embrace again. Grandpa misses you dearly, but what a blessing he is in my life. He is my last grandparent here on this Earth so I hold him close to my heart. I miss you so much Grandma, but I am sure you already know that. I cannot wait until the day where I reunite with my turtle-loving, dark-haired, football-crazed Grandma Glenna. What a wonderful reunion that will be.
Love you forever <3"
"Looking at your picture as I type this. Hard to contain myself. Wow! that great smile! I'm always carrying you around in my mind and heart everywhere I am. It's certainly not as warm anywhere since you left."
"I miss you, Grandma! I'm reminded of you almost every day. I think of you when I see pretty flowers or beautiful scenery. I think of you when I work at the temple, or on family history. I laugh when I watch a college football game, and remember your passion for that. I am reminded of your love when I give or get a warm hug. I still have the impulse to buy souvenir turtles when we travel! I love and miss you so much!"
"Happy birthday to one of my favorites!!! I was thinking today how mom and I would be planning the finger foods you love and your white cake with the white icing (still think it's boring ;) ) You are missed always and forever!"
Happy, Happy Eighty-Seventh!! "Wasn't it just yesterday that you were 81?" To just say I miss you is terribly understated. I'm sure you have already met our number 40! who arrived this month. "Ain't no sunshine when she's away." Hold the fort dear, I'm trying! Forever Yours."
"Dear Sweet Grandma Glenna,
I miss you more than words can say! I love you so very much! Thank you for being such a wonderful example to me! Thank you for living so righteously and giving me a path to follow!
As I was listening to the Apostles and Leaders speak in General Conference last week I kept thinking about you and Grandpa! Isn't it interesting that thoughts of you come flooding in during the most spiritual times in my life! It is truly my privilege to be your granddaughter! I miss you! I love you!
"My Dear One,
The second verse of You'll Never Know sends you my thoughts this day: "You went away and my heart went with you. I speak your name in my every prayer. If there is some other way to tell you I love you, I swear I don't know how. You'll never know, if you don't know now". Love, Jim."
"Happy birthday nana!!! Today is a special day, although your not here we still celebrate the life you lived here! You are greatly missed, but we always feel you near looking in on all of us. Thank you for being the woman you are and the legacy you left. Today I celebrate the wonderful woman you are! Love you so much! Happy birthday!!"
Time moves on, they say, but I am daily, painfully, and acutely reminded of the great void in my life that only you could fill. I love and miss you more each day, especially in the quiet of the night."
"Happy 85th Birthday Dear One!
We were together for so long, simple words would not do justice to how much I miss you. I adore and love you more each day, and I hope I can qualify to, once again, be at your side. Forever yours, Jim"
"Happy Birthday Grandma Glenna! I sure do miss talking with you! I think about you all the time. I often think about you looking down at all of us and wishing that we would all be better at realizing what is and is not important in this life. You are such a wonderful example of righteousness. I am thankful that I have you to look to and follow. I love you so very much!!! I always pray that Grandpa will be comforted as he toughs out these years without you. What a wonderful companionship you two sweethearts have!!!"
"We have really missed you, grandma! I thought time was supposed to heal all wounds, but this one is still hurting. We love and miss you so much!"
"Happy Birthday, my dear Glenna. I don't know if they celebrate birthdays there, but we are celebrating your birthday here with joy in remembering all the wonderful things about you and the fantastic things we did together as a couple and as a family. You are sorely missed!"
"My Dear Glenna
Happy 63rd Anniversary! You and I thought of this day as the most valued and important day of the year since it was the day we became one. How I treasure the memories of our short time together each day of the year and especially today! Life is certainly not the same without you. As the song says, "I will always love you."
"My Dear Glenna. 2 yr. & counting.My tribute to you today is that I shall never forget your ever-present love, loyalty, and support of me and our family and your enduring patience with my ragged edges. I remember your unwavering faith and dedication to Our Heavenly Father and to Our Savior. Be happy in the knowledge that this crazy & growing bunch you left loves & misses you Especially me"
"To my Dearest Glenna
Happy 83rd Birthday, dear, if you still count them. Today, I read to you, at your memorial, passages from the book Tiffany sent me. I hope you both heard it. I'm looking at your picture right now and thinking, "Ain't no sunshine when she's gone, and she's always gone to long". Keep your protective eye on this growing family! TWMA"
"Happy Birthday, dear Grandma! I still can't believe you're gone. I keep having the feeling that this is just a temporary separation and maybe that's because it is :-). I love you so much! Keep watching over Grandpa for us. He misses you so much! Try give him a spoke this Halloween just for fun :-)."
"Happy birthday grandma...or as my kids call you nana!!! Everyday we miss you. Everyday I think of you. Today is celebrated because its the day you blessed all of us. You and grandpa are the glue of the family. Thank you for leaving a legacy for something to aspire to. You are missed deeply, but today is another excuse to celebrate you. Love you always"
"When I was a 8th grader, I saw Jim's "girlfriend" for the first time (She was wearing her majorette costume at a foorball game) On the spot I developed a crush that remained all the days of my life...I loved her, and still do. Dan"
"Hi Dearest Glenna
I'm still here! taking one day at a time, but thinking of you always."
"We miss you Grandma.....do you get cake in heaven, because I'm assuming there is no diabetes? I love knowing who my "angels" are now. Happy Birthday."
"Happy Birthday, my dearly beloved. How I miss everything about you! I'm sure you are way too busy and enjoying your family and mine to know what is written here. Tell them all I look forward to being with them too. Love, Jim"
"Remembering you on your birthday, Grandma. I love and miss you so much! I can't wait to see you again. It will be such a joyous reunion!"
"I sure do miss you Grandma!"
"I am glad you were there to hug Tiffany for all of us. Tell her we miss her, we love her, and we are sorry we didn't get to say good bye."
"To my Loving Mother: I Wish heaven
had a phone so I could talk to you again. I thought of you today,but
that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that
too. I think of you in silence. I often speak your name. All I have are
memories and a picture in a frame. I miss you and love you MOM."
"i love you so much grandma. You have seen me grow up and i am happy that you did. Whenever i would come over, you would tell me that as once as you get your painting room that i can come over and paint with you. I am dissapointed that i didn't get a chance to. You were always taller than me believe it or not. You were 5 foot and i am 4"11 1/2. I miss you so much!
<3 Brenna Anne Scribner"
"I miss you grandma"
"I love you Mom and will miss you so much. I would feel like I accomplished so much if I could be even half as great at being a Mother and Grandmother as you have been. Thanks for making my childhood and the childhoods of my children so magical."
"I love you grandma and I will never forget how loved you always made me feel. I miss you dearly and I look forward to seeing you again someday."
"Grandma, Thank you for making my childhood magical! It is my priveledge to have you as a Grandmother. Your faith-promoting stories taught me at an early age that we have a Father in Heaven that knows us individually and wathches over us. Your unwaivering faith lead me to gain this knowledge for myself...and it has made all the difference. I love you! I miss you and I know I will see you again!"
"Grandma, it was always such a treat when you and Grandpa came to visit. I loved hearing the stories of your missions and adventures - they were a great strength to me during my own mission, and continue to strengthen me today. Now you have the wonderful opportunity to continue on with that great work. Veronika and I will consider ourselves extremely blessed if we can lead lives resembling yours."
"My dear Nana you have always had a huge impact on my life. Truly I would not be where I am today without you. You have been my biggest cheerleader through thick and thin. I am always humbled by how selfless, charitable, loving you are. Truly a women and daughter of Heavenly Father. Life will never be the same without you, give Michelle all our love, and we will see you in eternity. Love you"
"I am honored to be your granddaughter. Thank you for being the trailblazer for your huge family; in this life and now our life to come. Even though you tried to convince us that this day was coming, I thought you would out live us all! I will miss that strength and courage. I love you grandma."
"My sweet Grandma, it is hard to put into words how much I love you. I can hear your voice saying, "Oh Jim!" whenever I think about you. I will never forget Grandma's goodie box. You and Grandpa have always been and will always be two of my biggest heros. I love you Grandma"
"I have never seen my grandma without a HUGE smile on her face. She was like a big ray of sunshine that spread her warmth and cheer over everyone she met. These past few days have been filled with tears and laughter as we've remembered our dear grandma. Oh, how she will be missed! I love you so much grandma!"
"Grandma Glenna - I must thank you for always being so loving and kind to me when I came over for a visit with Candice. You always made me feel like I was part of your beautiful family. I will treasure our last visit together and will look forward to seeing you again one day. You left an amazing legacy and have touched so many lives. Thank you for being so wonderful."
"Oh Grandma, I love you so much. My heart aches as I miss the thrill of your sweet laughter. So much goodness and beauty has come from the life you have lived. You have made us all better people. So much of who I am today is a direct result of the choices you made in your life. I know you realize now just how much I have always loved you, how much we all have loved you. I miss you Grandma."
"I wish to honor my dear, sweet Grandma Glenna. Grandma was in every way a saint. Her life was an example to the world of humility, love, compassion and tenderness. Grandma has moved on to her next mission, now unimpeded by physical ailment, to teach and love her family and friends on the other side of the veil. I will miss Grandma with all of my heart, but I know I will see her again someday."
