  1. Son, Dorothy,Leland, Jeanette and the while family I an so sorry for your lose. Glen who a good person, growing up around him let me know that. I an without words. I wish I could be there with you all, but my husband has the same decease and cancer added to it. I don’t leave him now. Just know I an thinking about you all and all of you are in my prayers. And please keep Paul in your prayers. I love you all. Linda

  2. Anthony, and the entire family. I am so sorry for your loss. Glen and I were friends and have been since schools days. I understand your pain because I have lost both of my parents and it
    does get easier but it takes a while. Some days when you want to talk with him it will seem like yesterday and at other times it will seek like it has already been years. Just know that he loved each of your dearly. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
