So very sorry for your loss. Glenny C. was a great man and will be missed by so very many. May God comfort you in this difficult time. I wish I could say or do something that helps with the pain.
I have so many memories of Glenn at my parents' house, drinking coffee, eating something fresh baked (Mom always had to bake something because Glenn was coming. :) ) and laughing. A lot. What a wonderful laugh he had. :) It would take up to 2 hours to sign a couple of checks for the Fire Dept. LOL
You are all in our hearts and prayers.

I am sooooo very sorry for your loss. Didn't know him well but sure knew Sandy, Anige and Katie. He had to been a great man/husband/father as the way you are!! Hugs and prayers through these hard times. Days, weeks, months coming will feel lonely without him I can tell you. But know that God is with you and he must have needed him!!
