The brief time shared with Glen and Linda at FBC, Corrigan, will be remembered always. His handshake and smile welcomed us all. Linda's love and care will also be lovingly remembered. May you have the assurance that Glen is in the Lord's presence and "We Can Only Imagine," the wonderful reunion Glen is enjoying.

Gone so long ago are the days of our childhood, when our families were close and we grew up all together. After those days, we all went our separate ways with having our own life and own families. Then comes a time we reunite. Our parents are gone and we are the grandparents and heads of our childhood families. At this time, we reunite without missing any time lapse. I can’t tell you, Glen Ray how important it is to my family about our last reunion some years ago. Now it is time to turn over the monarchy to your children as you go be with God. But wait, we will be united again and forever some day. Thanks be to God. Love you dear cousin. Prayers for Linda and you family. Our Mothers were cousins and our Grandmothers were sisters. That is very special. ✝️✝️✝️🙏🙏🙏♥️♥️♥️

Linda and family,
It is so hard for me to express how sorry I am for your loss. Over the years, Glen become like my extended family and seeing him was always such a joy. I always told him he reminded me of my uncle, and I suppose that’s why I felt we had such a good bond. I am so sorry for your loss and offer my deepest condolences on the loss of such an amazing man. He touched many lives, mine included.
