Dot, Stanton, Hailey, and Meagan, and grandchildren,
Thoughts and prayers are with y'all. Glenn and I go way back...he was always my buddy and always will be. He's the one that gave me my nickname one day on the school bus, and it has stuck with me for all of the ones that were special to me growing up. I remember getting to know you, Stanton, and Hailey Bug when she was in 1st grade. I never had the chance to get to know Meagan. I may not have seen y'all often, but you have and will always hold a special place in my heart through Glenn. I always loved Glenn's laugh and his smile. If I can be of any help to any of you....I'm just a call away. I feel the same way about Duece, Tristan, and Taylor. I got to know them,also.
May you see God in the faces of friends, hear Him in their voices,feel Him in the touch of their hands, and may their help and love reflect His love and kindness at this time when you need Him most.
Dot, you are included in my thoughts and prayers. Glenn will be greatly missed. May God bless and keep the family of Glenn.
