I saw the obit in the paper and realized that Mrs. Glover's birthday was the same as mine except for the year. We both were born outside of Abilene, her 1/5/28 and me 1/5/38 and she graduated from Abilene High in 1946 and me in 1956. This was the first thing that caught my attention and then I looked down at the next obit and it was for Janice Glover Kelley and her maiden name was Glover and wondered if she was any kin to Wright Glover. Mrs. Glover died on 2/15/2018 and Janice Glover Kelley died on 2/16/2018 and their Mrs. Glover funeral is 2/19/2018 and Mrs. Kelly's is 2/20/2018. What are the odds of these occurrences happening when they did?
