I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Glen. He was such a good man and a Godly man. My heart goes out to Dennis, Carol and Sheryl. Uncle Glen was always there to help my Dad after my Mom died. He was always there for me when as a teenager I was a bit on the wild side. He can rest now, he is with God and Aunt Hazel. God bless the family.
