  • Mark, Mel, Thad & Family,
    Thinking of you and sending love and comfort. I have fond memories of Aunt Glo taking me to feed to ducks and showing up one day with a doll with blond curls who looked just like her. Fun times!

    With peace and love,

    Your mother was a beautiful gift to everyone she knew. We enjoyed her company when she chaperoned us at the little church at the bottom of Flax Hill Road while we rehearsed for Guys and Dolls. She was “another” mother to several of us. Always treated us with love and care and a sense of humor. She was blessed by all three of you and proud of you whenever she spoke to me about any one of you.

    My deepest sympathy and prayersv.
