Glenn will never have to face the last enemy death, ever again. In the meantime, his acts of faith live on until he stands up alive and whole in the Paradise.
Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."

Please accept our sorrow and sympathy on the passing of Mr. Glenn. He certainly was an icon of Prosperity and a man that helped the Town live up to her name. He was a man that had a passion for involvement and service. For that we are all the better. I always enjoyed his conversations, information and advice. For all of his years of service and our years of growing up, he always had my respects. Although he is not here on Earth, he is now back whole and working hard like he always did and a pure Peace. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia, and Jennylee

Dearest Ladison, Paula and family, Our hearts are filled with sorry yet also joy knowing that DeeDee is resting in peace in the arms of our Lord and Savior. He is finally reunited with Mama Jan and all his loved ones. DeeDee leaves with us so many family memories of years gone by. What glorious times we all had together. I especially cherish his and Mama Jan’s accepting me into their family as their very own. My prayers are with all of you as you transition into your lives of carrying on DeeDee’s strong legacy of loving compassion for everyone he met. I love each one of you and share most most treasured memories with you. God grant each one of you His peace. All our love, Nancy (Sam) and Tim Owen
