My deepest sympathies to Charlie, Elizabeth, Amelia, Kara, J.T., Joe, Liz and Jodi and the rest of your families. It’s hard to know what to say at times like these but you all know how much Glen meant to me and my family and how much you all mean to me, too. Glen was a constant in our lives — having him next door since I was 4 years old, I quite frankly cannot imagine him not being there. Glen and all of you ARE family to us. It breaks my heart that we’ve lost his kind, gentle, dear soul. But he lives on in all of you and we will always have such wonderful memories of him. God Bless. I love you all.
