My father, Robert Vernon Glenn was George Glenn's brother or Casey's (what we called Martin) uncle.
My brother Ron and I were in Greenbrier most summers for most of my elementary and high school years. We didn't see Casey much since he was in the Air Force by then but spent alot of time at Uncle
George and Aunt Olga's farm. I think the last time I saw Casey was at his brother Bill Glenn's funeral.
Please know that you all are in my prayers and thoughts. Don Glenn
