I extend my sympathy and condolences to the family of "Mary Louis Glaspie", for the great loss of their loved one. She was one of, if not the favorite classmates in our freshman year at Central. She was always keeping me laughing about something as well teasing me about something, she was quite a lady as I never forgot her even though I hadn't seen her since high school. Well, Prayers for the comfort of the family's comfort and healing from these difficult times I'm sure exist, God blessing as she rest peacefully with the Lord, so long Mary,........God bless.
