Hey Glen,
Thinking of you tonight and always. I always wonder where and what you would be doing of you were still here. I remember that tragic day, it ill be forever in my mind. But I also remember our friendship, we had a great friendship, it was like a son/mother relationship, even though I wasn't old enough to be your mom, lol! You had a wonderful relationship with my son, Brock, he is about to be a dad for the first time, you would be so proud. He misses you also. I keep up with the kids through Liz's FB. You would be so proud. I love you and miss you today and everyday. I know even though I eventually moved away that we would still have a friendship and keep in touch. I pray for your family and friends, because the pain never goes away.
