To the Glassmaker family, I am so sorry for your loss. From the little time I was able to spend with Linda, I could tell she was a very spirited compassionate woman. There was no doubt she loved her family with all her heart. She was always so fun to be around; in her presence there was never a dull moment. While those moments were cut way too short, the moments we have will last forever.
Tony and family,
You have my deepest sympathy. I know how hard it is and what a shock this must be to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Daryl & Renee'...I'm SO sorry that I won't be able to attend your sister's memorial service, but PLEASE know that my thoughts and prayers are being sent to you and your family.
