FALLING WATERS, W.VA. anthonyb@herald-mail.com Lana Spence, 43, was visiting Oprah Winfrey's Web site, Oprah.com, in early April and sent what she describes as a "venting e-mail" about her desire to lose weight. "I saw a picture of myself on stage singing in Los Angeles with Janis Joplin's band and really didn't like what I saw," she said. Spence, of Falling Waters, said she forgot about the e-mail until she got a reply from a representative requesting a picture of her. A week later, on her birthday, April 14, she got a present: a phone call asking her to be on Oprah's show.

Doris “Doey” Glessner was known for her spunk and style. Her zest for life was contagious, and she shared her life lessons with others by example. Youngest son Neal Glessner of Hagerstown said an appropriate epitaph for his mother would be, “She left a little sparkle wherever she went.” Even Doris' name changed over time. It started when older sister Evelyn's daughter took to calling her Doey because she couldn't pronounce Doris. That side of the family began using the nickname, then a few more special people, then over time, more and more, Neal said.
