Your mother was a 2nd mother to me. I really loved her, just unfortunate for me that I lost touch. She was so good at letting us be ourselves. I remember her playing solitaire while listening to the Red Sox on the radio, I remember the burned hot dogs (the only meat she ever ate), I remember her making me feel like was part of the family.
I'm so lucky to have been loved by her.

Please get back to me and let me know how you are all doing.

I am so sorry about your Mom's passing. I always called her Ma.

Jean and I are so sorry for your loss. I have so many great memories of your Mom Ivan. She always had a kind word to say to me. She would always make a point to ask how my parents were doing, and they would often ask me how your Mom was doing. I remember her at Stern's when my Mom took me shopping there. Glennis was a great person and I'm sure you all will cherish your memories of her.
Love and condolences to the entire Glidden clan.
