    This is Jan 18, 2016 and I am so very sorry to read about Glenn passing away in Dec. Glenn was the kindest, sweetest person one could find. He came to dialysis with Grace during the time I was taking my husband Don to dialysis also even after Grace passed away he still came to the Dialysis center on occasion so I asked him one time since he didn’t have to come there what was his reason for coming, his voice went to a higher pitch and he said, “Well I miss my friends I have to stop by once in a while and check up on everybody and visit a bit, it helps to pass the time.” My husband passed away on Jan 18, 2009 (which by the is the date today as I write this) I never went back to the center after my husbands passing but I have thought of Glenn often wondering how he was doing and was he still living. In April 2011 my kids moved me to Indianapolis, IN so I am out of touch with the people back there in Fargo but I do try to check the Obituaries on line every now and then. I didn’t know him that well on a personal level but I think he had a good 96 years. God Bless you, his family. Florence Liekhus
