My heartfelt sympathy to the Albritton/Covington families for the passing of a remarkable, sensitive and virtuous man-- that I glady called my friend. He will be dearly missed. He fought hard through his health and tribulation the last few years, and something we can learn from his steadfastness and nature.

I owe the beginning of my career to Glenn. I was his first draftsman, and he was my first boss. The $3.00/hour he paid me was as small fortune in the 1950s, and it helped pay my way through architecture school. I will forever be greatful for his confidence in my abilities and the direction he gave to me.
