I am so sorry to hear Glenn Has passed away.  We were friends in high School and  room mates in college at Sam Houston.  I wish I could come to his funeral but I live in Maryland now and do not travel anymore.  Glenn will surely be missed by all that knew him.

So sorry to hear about Glenn. We became friends I  do believe in first grade   at St. Phillips. Spent many an afternoon after school at his  house playing baseball. We were on the same Little League team  It was nice to see him at our reunion. He truly looked the same. RIP my friend.

Sorry to hear about Glenn's passing. I remember him in school and talked to him and joked with him at the class reunion. He was a very nice and a gentle man. He seemed to be a very kind guy to be with.  May he rest in peace and in GOD'S arms. Farewell Glenn.
