Gladys, Les, and Monie,
We were so sorry to read of Glenn's passing today.  I will always remember all of the fun in the backyards with both of our parents. Our dad's solving all of the problems of the world while getting the yards just right.  Many hours were spent in the garages just joking and hanging out. Glenn was a good and kind man and I guess that is what I will always remember most about him.

Gladys, so sorry to hear about your loss.  I loved running into you and Glenn as you were either shopping or 'eating out' in Paulding. I have missed those times, but never forget them!  
Our sympathy to you, Les and family.

I'm sorry for the loss of your dear loved one, you are not alone and may you find encouragement from God's word the holy bible at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God."
May you be comforted and have peace during this painful and difficult time as you draw close to God in prayer. (Isaiah 12:2, Psalms 83:18)
