Our families were neighbors on Rose St in Traverse City for many years until we moved to Englewood, FL. Glenn and I became Masons together and I enjoyed his friendship through many years. Although we haven't had contact for several years my wife and I still talk about the good times we had and our daughters growing with their son and daughter. Glen you will be remembered always.
