Sandi and Family,
I am sorry sorry to hear about Mrs. Glanz. I spent so much time at your home growing up and have some very fun memories. She threw the best bday parties with endless amount of junk food (rainbow popcorn and Pop-Shop-Pop) and pancakes in the morning. Always cheering us on in basketball and other school activities.

This is such a great photo...she looks so happy. I hope your memories bring you comfort.

John, I don't think I ever met your wife in high school, but I certainly knew you in grade school (and by sight in high school) and enjoyed your company. I recall our grandparents also knew each other.

I'm so sorry for this time in your life. I remember you being very quiet and thoughtful in grade school, so this must be very hard on you. Take care, my friend, as many thoughts are still with you.

I will be out of town for the weekend, so unable to attend the memorial, but I'll be thinking of you.

I will miss Virginia. I very much enjoyed the time that we volunteered together at Trinity Lutheran Church and the bible studies we shared. My prayers are with her family. Elaine
