I have treasured how loving and gentle Glen was with my baby daughter, Lucy, when the Curran's were her childcare family while I was at work. He was the best family leader that I could imagine. My sympathy to Carol, Buffy, and the Glen's fine sons.

Sending thoughts and prayers to Carole and the Curran family. Glen was truly a great man, he had a great sense of humor and he really enjoyed his fishing. We had alot of good times, fishing, going to South Padre Island one year for Thanksgiving and playing Mexican Domino's on Saturday evenings. He will greatly be missed, but our good times will always be remembered.

Dad enjoyed the water, whether just swimming in it, boating in water, fishing. He tried wind surfering down in Dominica Republic, that didn't work out too well but he kept trying till he could. Loved anykind of fishing.

Dad used to have us taking turns sitting in the ice cream maker, but we always got to lick the middle piece of the ice cream stirrer.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is hard to lose someone we love and no amount of words can truly express that sorrow. Glen was a good man and I'm glad that I had the chance to know him. I’ll always remember the trip we took to Bearizona and how he enjoyed watching the bear cubs play together. His sense of humor while we were waiting in the emergency room for Dawn to get her ankle x-rayed made the time go by so much faster. I only wish that we had more time to see more of Northern Arizona together.

Sending my prayers and love to each of you in such a difficult time.
