My condolences for your loss. I can't take away the pain of which you feel but, Isaiah 40:26 in part-reads that you will find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of Jehovah God, who will remember every detail about your love one and bring them back again in the "resurrection hope". (Acts 24:15)
I hope this brings a little comfort for your family and friends.

Glen was always gracious and such an encourager to be around. I will miss seeing him on Sundays and Wednesdays at First Baptist Gallatin. It was a blessing to serve as his pastor.

Noah, Willow, and Eden were heartbroken to hear the news, but smiled when I read the portion about how he enjoyed feesing the brids because they loved feeding the birds with him during their visit. I am praying for you today and every day.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and everyone in the Vaden family. Glen was perfect as a great grandfather to little Scotty.
I’m so glad that little Scotty was able to get to know him, and Glen got to see him turn into a young man.
Let us know if we can do anything.
