    Dear Galloway Family,
    My sincere sadness in the passing of your dear mother. She was always a role model for me, and had such a generous and loving heart for others. May God strengthen and encourage you all as you pass on the beautiful legacy she has left behind. My prayers are with you.

    Lib Galloway will be greatly missed by the scores of neighborhood kids that were friends with her four children. She was a great neighborhood mom to us all.
