Glen Flora was probably the toughest man I have ever had the honor of meeting. He was Great Grandfather to my daughter. And he will be missed by many. I am deeply sorry that I could not be there for the services,as well as I am sorry for the loss of this great man. But we will see him again through our shared Lord Jesus Christ. One of my first memories of him was when I went to visit with AJ, he told me "Don't mess with Texas!" As we pulled away, I felt like he meant,"Don't mess with my grandaughter!" They don't make great men like this anymore. With Love,Tristan
