Mrs. Glancy, Karen, Nicky and Diane. Thinking of each of you and sending prayers. Mr. and Mrs. Glancy were wonderful parents and neighbors. When Nicky wasn’t at my house playing with my brother and me, I would be at the Glancy house with Nikki. Mr. Glancy was always polite and cordial as was Mrs. Glancy. God bless each of you and may Mr. Glancy Rest In Peace.
