I don't know if I ever had the pleasure of meeting my great uncle Glenn, but I'm Linda's daughter, Phyllis' granddaughter. I know you were there with your nephew Ricky and great-nephew Jason to welcome my Nanny into heaven.

My condolences to Mrs. Simpson, my friends that were his grandchildren (ALL OF YOU) and everyone who was fortunate enough to cross his path in life! I met him at Bingo and worked with him at the casino, he directed me to create a 30 second ad for the Tulalip Casino for the radio, that was one memory I have of him! Love and prayers!

Will miss you Glenn but glad you are up there with your old buddy Lacy . To my sister Dawn and kids we love you always and our hearts are broken right along with yours - he was a great man and will be missed out here at Tulalip. Take care of yourselves and when you are feeling down just remember all the good times you had with him-those times will be forever in your heart and can be drawn out anytime you want. Love you all.
