Herman Glaess, RIP

Herman Glaess died in Lincoln on August 8 at the age of 83 . I have placed his photograph and obituary on my Family Glaess webpage.

After the Sylwester family moved out to remote North Columbia Avenue, we lived across a cornfield from the Glaess family. During the months when the corn was not grown high, it was about a five-minute walk between the two houses, so we were essentially neighbors. Mark Glaess was in our house many times, and I was in the Glaess house many times.

All the Glaesses had great senses of humor. They loved to joke and laugh with each other and with everyone they came into contact with. I think this characteristic began with Mr. Glaess, because I saw him joking and laughing many times.
