    We were saddened to hear of Glen’s passing. I have a lot of memories of your parents playing cards at our house many times.

    Janice met your parents after we were married and she always liked them. She thought your Dad was pretty funny.

    I knew Glen during the time he was at North Ridge. Although my contact was limited, mostly to handing out drinks in the dining room occasionally, I came to appreciate his quiet manner and sense of humor. One day when he said he wanted hot chocolate to drink, I asked him if he was diabetic. He said “No, that’s about all that’s not wrong with me.” I know he didn’t feel well at the time but he was able to laugh even though he was not having a good day. His quiet dignity will always be remembered. May you find comfort in your memories and in knowing that he is at peace with the Lord. — Luana
