Mr Tally was an amazing, kind and generous man. He was a customer of mine for 17 years until I moved away from TX 3 years ago. He shared many stories with me about his and Ms Dorothy’s past adventures. I know he loved his church family and we shared many of the same beliefs. He always had a smile for me but we also shared a few tears together too. I’m sad that we lost such a great man but I am so happy that he is in the presence of our Lord and reunited with Ms Dorothy. My deepest condolences to the family. I am praying for you all during this time of loss.

Sincerely
Amy Green

Kind. Generous. Thoughtful. Selfless. Responsible. Loving. Thorough. Servant. Humorous. Husband.

These are some of the words that come to mind about my Uncle Glenn.

He was a blessing to everyone he ever met. He could laugh at himself. He did anything he could to help.

And he was a war hero, too. He was one of the greatest of the Greatest Generation.

He will be missed by everyone he ever touched, and there are so many of us. Love you, Uncle Glenn.

What a beautiful man. He loved his beautiful wife and spoke of her often. He always wore the very best smile. He had a heart full of love, Jesus and a very sharp mind. He could tell you about anything he had experienced and didn’t mind telling about the mistakes, because there was a lesson in them as well. It has been 2 1/2 years since the last time I got to see this precious man, but he will forever hold a place in my heart! ❤️❤️❤️

I was Mr. Tally 6-2 aide at meadowlake senior living. He was such a sweet and caring man. He would always ask about my kids and making sure they were doing good. I known Mr. Tally for 5 years and they were wonderful years. He called me Dee and always say "what's going on Dee"! Mr. Tally was a grandfather figure to me whom I loved very much. You will truly be missed. Rest in heaven

Glenn was my cousin. His mother was one of my daddy’s older sisters. His mother taught him to love and care for others and she was a great teacher because he certainly had a gift to care for others. Glenn was truly a southern gentleman and one of the finest men I have known. I know there was a great reunion in heaven when he arrived. Love and comfort to Belinda and family.

Glenn and my cousin, Dorothy, were married when I was quite young, but I remember the occasion fondly. Glenn treated his in-law family with love, respect, and dignity. Even after Dorothy's death, Glenn would attend family events. I have always felt that he was a wonderful individual who genuinely cared for people. He will be missed.

My prayer is that those in his family will be comforted by our Lord and rest in the assurance of His love for us.
