Prayers and Hugs to Reba and family. I know Glen is rejoicing in heaven with the rest of the family, including my sweet Mema, Olene. I remember his jolly disposition and belly laugh from when I was a young girl, what a sweet man. May you find comfort in your precious memories.

With Love,

Glynn and Reba accepted me into their family when my son Josh married their daughter Amy. Since then we have spent holidays, birthdays, and family dinner nights together. We became not only family but friends. I will miss my conversations with Glynn for we had many. Reba and Glynns daughters Amy and Joyce along with their husbands and children were with Glynn everyday during his illness. They showed the kind of love everyone should know and feel. I am blessed to know them and be part of their family. Do not worry Glynn I will help look after Reba who is very dear to me.

Glynn was more than my brother in-law, he was a good friend that I loved dearly. I want to tell his wife Reba and daughters Joyce and Amy that I have heard his testimony and believe he is in the presence from the moment he left this world. My prayers are with the family and friends and may God give you the strength to stand during this time of need and if you need me just give me a call.
