I have many fond memories of Ingrid , Glenn & their parents while we grew up at Greensboro. One special recall I have is that of Ingrid & Glenn arriving for Sunday School at the Greensboro Methodist Church with them both appearing as just stepping out of a clothing store front window with their hair perfectly combed and clothing that was of the latest taste. She was always leading Glenn by the hand into the building to deposit him at his room, then moving on to her own.
My wife, Kathy, enjoyed a visit with Ingrid & Tom at their office and home a few years ago, they both we very gracious and welcoming.
May she now Rest In Peace with our Lord & Savior.

So very sorry to read of the loss of your wife. At the same time, seeing two people married for such a long time certainly honors our Creator who instituted marriage. I can only imagine how many memories you made and shared together. I hope that you will be able to smile at times when you reflect on the many fond memories you built. It is truly an amazing promise given to us at John 5:28,29. I pray that as you read this scripture, it can give you hope and strength to look forward to the day when we will see our loved ones again as promised. Deepest sympathy

I just found out from my sister Dianne in Greensboro, Ga. about the news that we lost a wonderful and kind friend in Ingrid. She will always be remembered dearly by her classmates from GHS. Our prayes are with you all.
