Debbie and I were both so sad to learn of the passing of our dear friend. Please know that you are in our every thought and prayer today and in the coming days. We shared a lot of great times with Glen going to every event around the county for many years, fish fries, BBQ's, pie suppers, they all seemed to evolve around food! Glen was always the person you wanted to see at those events because you knew we were going to have fun. I always have said there is a list of people you always hoped you would run into at event, he was always on that list because he always made you smile and he was always sharing with my wife Debbie who has MS that he was praying for her every day. Those words meant more than we could ever say. Special man and friend. God Bless you and your family during this time.

I grew loving you and your family, Mr. Robinson, through church at Oak Forest UMC, but I'll admit that I have never gotten used to that wild-duck gumbo from the sunday school family camping trips. So glad to know that you are now walking with Jesus. All my love and deepest condolences to the Robinson family.
