Uncle Glenn was a rock with a solid foundation based upon his fundamental believes, morals and ethics. He stood for what he believed in. He was an inspiration to many of the family members and was always there to lend a hand and give his support. We will surely miss his words of wisdom and his sense of humour. May God give His grace, love and embrace as Uncle Glenn enters the Lord's kingdom. You will be missed! Love Darrell, Kathy, Bonnie, Randy, Sherry, Joe and all of our families.
