  3. Mae was a dear customer long ago at Glassner Jewelers. We met again years later and, of course, became Facebook friends. I loved reading of her adventures, and I loved seeing her smile. She will be missed.

  4. John and Lee so sorry for loss. Been thinking about the good times with Bill and Mae. They are both together now. Cindy and I will have you two in our prayers.
