Glenn is now in the arms of Jesus with a lot of his friends and family.  I know he hated to leave you here but life is glorious where he is at now.  Dorothy, you and him were Godly examples to many of us including myself and your rewards will be many.  Praying the Lord will confort you till you see Glenn again.

I know that Glenn will be missed, he had a witt and humor about him that we all loved. The memory's I have are when they both lived on the farm on Winnemac Pike. As Kids we were always getting into trouble in the barn or around the pond & woods. Sorry for your loss, may God Bless

My condolences to all the family on Glenn's passing. I remember him as a kind Christian gentleman that helped with the Boy Scouts, and even let us camp out a time or two in his woods. Rest assured our Savior has a place for him over there and his parting is only for a moment...............gfields
