    We bow in humble submission to the will of God. Evangelist Glennie Jenkins was truly a Servant of the Most High God. We often called her Mother Jenkins. On Numerous occasion, she used her God given gifts to do alterations to many of my dress suits and clergy wear. We often talked about the Lord, and she inspired my life with faith filled testimonies and Encouragement. She will truly be missed. To the family, we love you, and asking our God of all comfort to wrap his lovely arms around you during this difficult time.

    Losing a loved one is always hard for the ones left behind to mourn. In time we will remember the lessons learned from aunt Glennie, and pass those lessons on to our children and grand children, and in doing so the memory of aunt Glennie will live on in all of us...We loved her dearly. (John 5:28,29)

    Our condolences to your family and friends. It never easy to lose a a love one. Thanks to Almighty God Jehovah for the hope of the resurrection. At John 11:25, 26, Jesus said ‘I am the resurrection and the life.’ The one who exercises faith in me,even though he dies will come to life., and everyone who is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. Do you believe this? One day some death will be no more. Again our condolences.

    Those we love leave us gifts in the form of memories that no one can take away. Wisdom that we can still recall. These are the things that we will cherish forever. May the family continue to look to Almighty God for comfort during this most stressful time since "He is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18. My condolence to you

    Mr. Artis, words cannot express my heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Ms. Glennie did not only teach me how to use the sewing machine as a little girl, she also taught me how to live Holy before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As a woman, a sister, a wife and a mother her spirit lives on throughout the community. May you continue to call on Jesus to comfort you at this time and know that I am praying with you. God Bless.

    We're so sorry to hear you are mourning the recent loss of your loved one. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 46:1 which reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
