Glenn was the father of our two children Bobby and Tammie. He was a wonderful dad. He loved them beyond measure as well as his grandchildren. He was one of the most caring persons anyone could ever have in their lives. He left a lasting impression in anyone’s life he touched. We miss you still today. I know you are happy with your loved ones there, but we weren’t ready to let you go and if you could come back to us well, I would build the stairway to Heaven myself. Your buddy ( Roger ) needs and misses you. We all miss and love you. Thank you for the legacies you left for us all. Eternally Greatful for the treasured years.
