  20. You were part of a very special group of women who after WW II had the courage to travel to a new land and become devoted to it, but still had the foresight to inspire in your children an appreciation for that homeland you left behind. Like your children, I am thankful for being raised with the same international perspective that you brought into their lives and know what impact you had on molding them into the adults they are today. May memories of those very special times you shared with them give them comfort as they navigate this difficult time of their loss. May their understanding of the message of God’s love for us all and the death and resurrection of his only son give them give them stength. My thoughts are with you and those you loved, Schlaf in Himmliche Ruhe. Pat and Chris’ friend, Fernando.

  22. There are no words to comfort you at this time. Please know that your loved one and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

  23. Ingrid and I met in Japan in l955 and, together, with our families we became friends for life. We vacationed together and visited each other often. Our children, Carrol and Michael and their children, Patsy and Carol, (with one r), practically grew up together. (Diana arrived later). We were so often together, doing this or that, so that our son, Michael, eleven years old at that time, wondered about the link of our relationship and finally asked, “are the Glennons our second cousins, or what?” We share so many memories and will always remember Ingrid. Our friendship remained solid for more than 50 years and Ingrid and I talked a lot about EVERYTHING and NOTHING. We were like Ying and Yang. She was the artist and more right brained and I am physical and more left brained. We discussed politics and religion, the two subjects most friends shy away from, but our friendship survived it all. We learned from each other and I know I learned a lot from my friend and I shall miss her for the remainder of my stay on this planet. I feel some of the pain at the loss of Jim’s companion, friend and soul mate and the children’s and grand children’s loss of a mother and grandmother, and we are conveying our most sincere condolences to all of the family.

  24. I would like to send my condolences to you and your family for the loss of Ingrid. She was a wonderful woman and I felt very close to you all even though we did not get to see each other often. Please know that we are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

  25. My condolences to Mrs. Glennon’s family. I never had the opportunity to know her, but I am friends with Patricia. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you during this time of loss,

  26. Pat, Carol, and Diana: My heart goes out to you! Although I never had the pleasure of meeting your Mother, I know she was a wonderful lady from the stories you shared about your family. Know that my entire family sends their love. Sincerely, Julie Miller

  27. Dear Mr. Glennon and Family, You have our deepest condolances on your loss. Our prayers are with you.

  28. Pat, what a blessing that you were able to have your mother for 78 years! Our condolences and prayers for you and your family, Nancy and Ted Fisher

  29. To you my family, that I have grown up with and passed through many seasons. I just got my letter today about Mrs. Glennon. My heart was saddened at her passing. I know that my mom and her were so very close. When my mom passed away and Bobby & I moved into her house there were many days that I went over to visit. She helped me during a very difficult time, and in turn went from my mothers friend to mine. I was so very thankful for her and Mr. Glennon’s love. My tears flow again with her passing, but please know that I loved her and I love you all, and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Darien Otwell-Nesselrode
