Mary, I’m so sorry about Glen’s passing. He was such a sweet, gentle soul — so easy to love. My heart goes out to you and I pray that God’s healing presence be with you during this period of grief. Kindest regards.
Mary, Sorry about Glenn but glad he had such a long life. We are sure that you are glad to be in Brandon Woods and near your nieces and nephews.
Gayle and Rose Marie told us last night and they plan to go to Lawrence but we will not try to make the trip. We also have a conflict with our cardiologist tomorrow morning so will not get to go to Old Mission United Methodist Church. Do know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love Keith & Jane
We have special memories of wonderful times with Mary and Glenn; family reunions, visits to their home, and meals out together. What a very special couple. Always so gracious and giving. Our prayers and love to Mary and the extended family.
Glen and Mary were our next door neighbors on Horton Street in Mission when we were first married. They were very kind to us and invited us to their house for a farewell lunch when we left to move into our new house in Shawnee after being in Mission for seven years. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Mary. May she have nothing but happy and warm memeories of her years with Glen.
