I never knew my Uncle Glenn very well, as I only got to see him a few times growing up during family reunions, but every single memory I have of him is a good one. I remember most that he liked to laugh; it was a hearty laugh that made me feel good. There was an energy about him that made me feel a very certain affinity for him. He was my mother's big brother, and I *felt* that. And I remember his German Shepherd "Smokey" ... at least that's the name I remember from childhood, and I remember that Smokey was devoted to him and liked to ride around in the back of his pickup truck. They say that Smokey got mad if Glenn left him at home during trips, and would leave the room when Glenn got home. (Shepherd's are sensitive that way.) Uncle Glenn was also mysterious to me, and I believe he had his demons, as many of us have. I do miss knowing he's out there in the world. (Oh, and he once broke up a fight that I was losing in a basement. That was pretty cool, too! Lol!) <3

My big brother Glenn. As Sandy said...good memories!! I too recall your Hop-a-Long bike and how you enjoyed the outfit. The bike eventually passed down to me and I loved it! Ice skating and sledding...your burnt jacket as you leaned on the warming burner. I will always recall at Easter the time we both had the melted chocolate bunnies when Dad hid our baskets in front of heat registers. I loved our fun shopping trip when you picked out what you wanted and you selected a bright NEON green sweatshirt, and snacks, snacks, snacks.

Our beach trip with Sandy was the best! Yes, you sure enjoyed the battleship. And we have great photos of us three. You made fun of Sandy and me collecting so many shells, spread out on the deck. And how we got you down to the beach and the water lapped your feet. How about the ice cream and no-bake cookies you loved!!

I well recall your talent at the piano. Moonlight Sonata was played over and over as I sat by you on the bench. Your voice will never leave me...loved your singing along with playing the guitar.

This past year I enjoyed sharing times and photos with you on FaceTime. It was so good to see you and hear your voice. It was almost as good as our visits in the sun outdoors. A great memory too was our times out to restaurants, sharing a drink or two (wink!).

Love you forever Glenn. You were thoughtful and always there for me.
Sister Rebecca (as you liked to call me)

Dear Michele,
I would like to send my sincere condolences to you and the rest of Glenn's family. You were there for Glenn when he needed you most, and you made his last years more comfortable. Thank you so much Michele. May Glenn rest in peace.

Sincerely, Sandy

Dear Glenn,
You will be missed, but you left me with fun memories from our childhood. From ice skating to sledding at our secret sledding run. We tapped danced for the Women's Club down at the Mayflower Hotel. You got to sing Autumn Leaves in the Christmas play, and I was one of the angles. I can see you on your Hop-a-long Cassidy bike, with that big hat and your six shooters on your sides. We also played many games of hop scotch on the front sidewalk.
So glad Becky and I got you to Top Sail Beach a few years back. You got a kick out of me feeding the birds for you. You loved the tour of the North Carolina Battleship, and that great steak dinner we had one night. Yes, I will remember all the good times we had Glenn.
Love, from your sister Sandy
