I met Glenn while serving in Guantanamo bay Cuba , we became instant Brother’s , it took 35 years for us to reunite only to be our last , this was the last thing I said to him: You’re one of the finest men I’ve ever had the privilege to know; work with and call my Brother ! All I can do now is thank God he allowed us to take one last stroll down memory lane, R.I.P. my friend, God Bless

Glenn, I met you in 1985, from then on, we were Blue Water Brothers, who paid our bills by plying our trade on and in the briny waters.

Later, we became Brothers of the Highway, as we chased sunsets on a black ribbon of asphalt.

I know in my heart that you are with your Lord and Savior.
