I met Glenn shortly after my daughter, Penny, married a wonderful guy named Brian Ohlendorf. I liked Glenn the moment I met him. He was a warm and friendly gentleman, not like most people nowadays. He was soft-spoken and seemed to have only positive words and thoughts. I was not really surprised, I guess, because I had met and really liked his wife Carol and, of course, Brian. May God be with Glenn's whole family to comfort them for their loss, and may the Lord send his special angels to give Carol comfort at the loss of Glenn until they are together again in heaven. God bless, Sandy Booth
