    Glenn was a wonderful man. My ex husband Duane McBee and I visited with Glen and Chyral a lot right after we were married and then just lost contact. Chyral, a lot of people really don’t know what you are going through losing your husband, but I can totally understand your pain as I just lost my husband last week. My prayers are with you and the family. May God wrap his arms around you and give you comfort and peace knowing you will see him again. God bless you. Marilyn (McBee) Hampton

  2. Sorry to hear about my second cousin Glen’s passing. When I was growing up, he was my idol, he was 6 years older than me and I thought he was the coolest guy I knew. I remember him mowing my grandmother’s yard (his Aunt Jo). I took over that job when I got old enough. He always seemed to have time for me back then. When he started his electric business, he could be counted on to fix electric problems for family, which he never charged them for. I wish I had stayed in touch with him these last several years, but he will always be an important and influential part of my life.

  3. May the Lord comfort all my family members as they morn the loss of Glen. There has been much joy in all our lives over the years as we traveled to various parts of the country but the drawback has been loss of contact with each other. My prayers for Chyral and all the children and family members. I cannot attend because of recent hip surgery but I do, and will pray.

  5. Be at peace my sweet friend “Glen”. Your memory is etched in my heart, along with all the good times in past years with you and Chyral. You were always so hard working, but put your family first. I so respected you and felt honored that you both have touched my life in such a positive way. You will be missed.

    Sending a prayer of comfort to you Chyral, to your wonderful sons and their families and to Sandy and Butch. I have sweet memories of Glenn as a child. I always thought he was such a great guy. I remember Easter egg hunts, trick-or-treating, playing at the park, and going to that little grocery store down by your house. We actually kind of roamed the neighborhood without a care in the world which made for really nice memories. Glen will be missed by so many.
