    I am so glad I was able to give him a big hug at my mothers funeral in March. I so appreciate CArol and Glenn being there for our family. I used to be so close to Glenn and Carol, they where like my second parents. When I lost my mom I told them I really wanted to spend more time with them. God has plans of having my mom and Glenn spend time I guess. Praise God in all of his splendor to let two beautiful people go home so soon together. My mom just loved spending time with Carol and Glenn years ago. Eating at moms kitchen, ice cream at Mcdonlads. Glenn passed on my mothers birthday. They will be our guardian angels and watch over us all and keep us joined in the lord and in family. Amen
