Uncle Glenn was actually my deceased husband, Junior Kendricks uncle. We lived out of state and only saw him at family. gatherings. He was one of the kindest people I have ever met.. He always had a smile on his face. He was what I call. A Gentle. Man. I want to tell Janet and the girls plus all the rest of the family how sorry I am and all of you are in my prayers. God bless you all.
