    Such a sweet cousin. Eight years difference in our ages but I remember how you taught me how to draw pictures of Popeye and Fred Flintstone I still do this for my grandchildren and I always told them that my cousin Glen showed me how. Your memories will be missed by me.

    The most amazing and loving man. He had a boisterous laughter. He loved talking about the Lord. He will be greatly missed!
    He loved his wife and kids like no other man I’ve ever met. Family was everything to him.

    So many thoughts going through my mind. You were more of a brother than an uncle. Your laughter and smiles will always be with me. I love you bunches. Say hello to mom and dad and grandmas and grandpas for me.
