Dear Shelton Family,

My prayers and my heart go out to you. I just heard today and words cannot describe how sad this makes me. I am so sorry that I didn't keep in touch. Glenn was one of the smartest people I have ever worked with, but more importantly a good friend. We both started our first real jobs at Union Camp (later IP) in Franklin, both NRCC grads, and living alone in a new place. We spent a lot of time together then and I now value those memories more than ever.

"GRACIOUS LORD, strength of the weak and ever-present help in time of need: grant us the grace to trust you in all things and to find you present in every circumstance, for our heart will never find perfect peace or full contentment until we rest in you. Amen."
- Paul Wesley Chilcote
