Kathy and family-
I am so very sorry for your loss and the pain you are going through. Tony “gifted” Glenn and I on our wedding day with a bowling ball chained to Glenn’s ankle! I planned for years on how to return the favor and regret that I never got around to it. Once, when I stopped to visit Kathy, I came out to my car to find a giant spider (Halloween decoration) resting on my hood. I left it on the steering wheel of his truck 😁. I know you all will miss him and his shenanigans, and I hope you know he will continue to touch your lives in many ways. I will think of him every time I use the human-sizes tongs he made for my fire pit!
Love you , Carol and Glenn
