Dear Kenny, Patty, Brenda, Mitch and your families —

Darlene and I wish you the best during this difficult time. It was always a pleasure to interact with Uncle Glen. I particularly remember that when I was very young he pitched for the local softball team. I enjoyed watching him and his team play, both in Stull and in Topeka. Both Uncle Glen and Aunt Betty brought a great deal of peace, kindness, and joy to me, especially during my early years. I will never forget his pleasant approach to life and his positive demeanor toward others.

Dear Kenny, Patty, Brenda, Mitch and famillies.
Our hearts go out to you all with love and condolence. I have many fond memories of Glen. A very kind man and pillar of the community. I always knew exactly where your parents would be seated every time I went to the Stull UMC. Always enjoyed our visits.

Glen was a very kind man. He took time to explain things and help youth to learn. He was also had patience. I remember him on the farm at 4-H and at church. I will always remember his smile.
