Leeward, Barry and Randall...I am so sorry to hear about Barbara. I have such fond memories of all of you...the time I spent with you in the summers. I especially remember how kind Barbara was to me. I can still hear her voice. I loved her sense of humor and her little smile. It may be hard to believe this but even after so many years have past, every time I smell cut grass I remember being in your back yard...the smell of the grass freshly cut...the whole family outside having fun. I loved being a part of it. Barbara made such an impact on me to this day. I loved her. I love all of you. I will pray for comfort for you all in the coming days.

Sending Barry, Connie and family my deepest condolences as you grieve the loss of your beloved Mother, Wife and loved one. I may have never met Mrs. Glass, but I see her face in her son. May God comfort, guide and keep you through your mourning. May you remember the beautiful person I imagine she was.
Sincerely, Michelle Lyn.
