John and I go back 30 years. Although I met him at the age of 28, we grew up together. We were like brothers. His mother called me her son. He knows my family, and I his. We were together during each other's romantic relationships and his relationship with my partner was that of a brother...an extension of me as they also, laughed and fought as brothers do...Looking back, I laugh at this remembrance. People would often say, If you saw one, you saw the other...that's how we rolled. We travelled around the world together up until the economy took a downward turn in 2010. I remember us taking the redeye to Europe and right after the plane landed, John drops his luggage off at the hotel and he's off to explore and site-see. Me, I take a nap. It was like, he knew life was short and he wanted to get as much jammed into a day as possible and experience all he could. His passion for life was unrivalled. He loved to cook and boy, could he...and I loved eating his cooking. We loved exploring wines together. Nothing like sitting around the house together with a fire blazing in the fire place and having our own little wine tasting. Our life went from dreaming about our futures together to figuring out things on our own. Why life played out this way is hard for me to fathom because so much was left unsaid yet everything was said as love usurps all. When John and I took time apart and explored life on our own path, I found that we were still very much in sync. Since John's passing, I noticed from his social media page he had re-connected with his arty side in September 2020....that is the same year and month I had started re-connecting with mine. We had many moments like this, where our journeys were so similar yet different, but would happen at the same time and almost simultaneously. We'll always be connected, spiritually and consciously. My heart is heavy, and a part of it will always belong to John Daniel Glenn...MY greatest friend.

Wrong

This world is wrong,
I’m not in the right one anymore.
I’ve been ripped from it.
I don't belong.
I’m stuck in this world,
A world so wrong.

I won’t hear your laugh,
That ‘Hey my friend’ down the phone.
I'll not see the spark in your eyes,
Or smile that said all.
Oh, what a smile,
The Berwick Street one.

I'll never feel your hug hello again,
Your goodnight darlin’ kiss.
No new tastes will be shared here,
Hot pepper ‘challenges’ risked.
Your sweet morning scent is lost to me now,
Everything a mist.

This world isn’t right,
A world where you’re gone.
My world can’t be right anymore,
It will always be wrong.

My family and I have warm memories of John. He was kind and genuinely interested in the well being of everyone he called a friend. John always had words of encouragement for my sons and a smile and a hug for each of us. Others have said that he lit up a room and it is so true. He lit it up with his infectious smile and with his kind heart. While we didn’t see him often, we will forever miss him.

John was the person that lit up every room he entered. His mere presence was enough to hold everyone’s attention. He was one of the most positive, upbeat and kind humans I’ve ever grown to know. He never stopped checking on me over the years and following up right where we left off. I will remember his kind spirit always cheering me on from afar and making sure I was OK. I will miss you John for so many reasons. Thank you for making me a stronger man and for being a role model in ways you never will know.

Every time I brush my teeth. I think of John and smile. We were both teeth obsessed. He would tell me new techniques for whitening. He would always make me smile. I loved his big hugs. Never leaving without saying I love you. His love and true essence will never leave us

So saddened by John's passing. He always had a great smile and a hug (before covid). He was a wonderful person and I will miss our conversations.

I have only good memories of a warm hearted soul. Over these many years seeing him when he came to visit his dear friend Will in Woodstock I would talk with John. Most recently Labor Day he created a caprese salad presentation drizzling on the chocolate and I joked with him that it was like watching a cooking show on tv. John always had a positive attitude even about the recent storm damage in his condo he was upbeat. His smile and his presence was uplifting. My deepest sympathies to his family. May his memory be a comfort and a blessing.
