My deepest sympathies to the Glasgo Family.
Larry and family, we were saddened to hear of Lorna's passing. Although we haven't been in contact with your family for awhile, we still fondly remember our square dancing days and the fun we all used to have together. Lorna was such a nice and cheerful person to be with. Our thoughts and sympathy are with you and your family.
Larry and family,
Our heartfelt condolences to you and all the family. I have wonderful memories of Lorna while growing up. She was a wonderful lady. God Bless you all.

Bless her heart. Prayers for the family.
Larry and Family,
Once again I found myself turning to KMAland this morning and there was Lorna's name. Our wishes are with you and your family on the loss of your wife, a beloved mother, and just a grand lady. Maybe I should just stop turning to KMAlamd!

Sonja and Family,
My deepest sympathy to you.
Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone. Those we love can never be more that a thought apart. For as long there is a memory, they’ll live on in our hearts. - Author Unknown

I will echo my cousin Steve's tribute to an amazing beloved Lorna as I was one "crying a few tears at the end of 2019." With distance separating us, it was always a joy to talk with her as she renewed connections with 'home.' She will be missed by so many including her loving family. Thinking of all of you.
An amazing woman! Always pleasant. The best fighter I know. We were born days apart and went through grade school and high school together. Everyone that knew Lorna is crying a few tears at the end of 2019!
Larry and family,
So sorry to hear of Lorna's passing. She was always involved in so many things that I would see her often. From the hardware store to Study and Service Club to school activities, she was always there. And always smiling! Bless Her Heart!
Hugs and prayers to the Glasgo family. Lorna will be truly missed. She was a sweetheart and loved by many people
Larry and family,
Oh wow, so sad to hear this news today. Lorna was one of the sweetest people on this earth. May her memories live forever in the hearts of those who loved and knew her. Sending prayers to you all.
