Joe & family,

I'm so sorry for your loss. Nothing I can say will bring Bill back or ease the pain of your loss. I will miss seeing him working around his property, always in motion and always ready to chat. Blessings on your family at this difficult time.

My absolute most favorite memories are spending time listening to the funniest stories of my life. Glen & Gloria we're absolute gems. I was so blessed to spend the morning with him only a month ago. Sadly missed, forever in our hearts. Every time I came thru WV, it was often the highlight of my visit. My thoughts and prayers to the family.

Follow this lineage....Glen is my mothers' (Saralyn Shamblin Englert) fathers' (Harold Shamblin) mothers' (Virgie Shamblin) brothers' (Rome High) son. Yes, my 4th cousin.

Sorry to hear about Glenn, just talked to him a month or so ago when he called to ask about Danny and Margaret Ann. Said he was doing Ok. Will miss those calls. He and Gloria were very good people.

I am so sorry to hear of Mr. High's passing. He and Mrs. High were the best neighbors to me when we lived on Butler St. I can remember him always checking on me to make sure everything was ok . Such a good man. Deepest sympathies to your family.
