Glen was always so nice to me when I needed technology help at Griffin. He always made me feel like my question was a good one, even when it wasn’t! He always had a smile on his face.

I was so sad to hear about Glen. I worked with him at Ethridge and I loved to chat with him and considered him my friend. My prayers are with his family at this time!
