Glenn was such an awesome man of God. This was reflected in his love for others. He had such an "anointed hug", that people lined up at church to get a Glenn hug. It was a hug and blessing all in one. Our family has been honored and blessed to have known him, and been loved by him and Jo. Love and peace to you, Jo.
