There are no words that can describe the feeling I have for my Uncle Glen. I will sadly miss our very LONG phone conversations almost every month. It brought me great joy and made him so pleased. I will cherish the last visit I ever had with my Uncle at my Cousin Lynn's home in Lexington, Kentucky. The time he came down and we went to visit the grave sites of our family and the old home they lived in. He loved a good conversation, a good meal, good jokes, and lots of laughter. He was the most loving, kind and big hearten Uncle I ever knew. He would always end our conversions with love ya. He was a real Southern gentleman to the max. He loved his Kinfolk beyond believe and contained a wealth of information and memories of our large family from the past. I would always say: Just ask Uncle Glen. My mom loved him to death and I know he was so sadden when she and Aunt Mary passed before him. Uncle Danny now is the only one left. My love and prayers to Aunt Pearl and the family. You are in my thoughts this day. I only wish I lived closer so I could have been there. I am there with y'all in spirit. Love much, Billy xoxoxo

He loved to argue politics - he was the only one I was ever willing to argue with because he enjoyed it so much! Loved his dogs too. He could be grumpy but also so generous. He’ll be greatly missed & we’re so very sorry for your loss.
