  1. Pauline and family,

    Glenn was always such a gentle and pleasant gentleman, and will be missed. He loved his neighbors, and easily made friends with all he met. He was very protective of Mr. Gilbert’s home and family. His final sign should read, “This gentle man loved everyone.”

    I have and will miss him.

  2. Shelly and Mike, I am so sorry for your loss, May the Lord wrap him in His arms and bring him into the Land of Glory.
    Janet Hart, (formally from Hitchcock)

  3. Shelley and Mike, I am so sorry to hear about your father.

    I have lost your telephone # for your cell, so I couldn’t call you.

    Won’t be able to come cause of another obligation.

    Know that I love you, but Jesus LOVES you more!
