Glenn and your family, I want to express sympathy upon your loss. You were fortunate to have such a wonderful matriarch. May her memory always be a blessing. Glenn, I want to say that you were a great co-worker and kind person at DLI. I was forced to retire shortly after you left due to some "events" that were the focus of that organization in 2019, Anyhow, it really worked out for the best, Hope you and your wife have a great summer. Someone remarked about your sons amazing mathematical abilities and I know your family is really proud, Take care.

Thanks for the kind words, Karen. We all have such good memories of those years at Zion. My parents spoke so highly of Sig and Grace and valued their friendship. We’re thankful they are all together again.
