    Glenda and Don Drinkhahn have been my inspiration since July of 1965. The world is not as bright with Glenda’s passing. I sure love me some Drinkhahn’s.

    Glenda and Don lived next door to our family when they were in college. I have such wonderful memories of Glenda, when we were growing up at Woodland Beach, in Michigan. Always sweet, kind, and funny.
    RIP Glenda. Diane and your parents are waiting for you.

  • Glenda and Don were put together by God. So to me, Don’s cousin, she was someone I would forever honor and love. She will be missed. Peace and comfort to Don, Ted, and Ryan. Merlyn Seitz
