Thomas Glasgow wrote a sympathy message

“Tom & I wish that we could be with you today, to hug each and every one of you and offer words of comfort. Mary was a great sister and I admired her for raising her family so well despite the obstacles she encountered. I also loved her sense of fun, sharing great vacations with her kids and everyday happenings too. She had such a strong faith in God. She shared that faith with me, serving as my confirmation sponsor. I hope her faith is comforting you today. Peace and much love to all.”
