Glenny. You were such a wonderful Big Brother and Great Brother-in-law to Hank. Any time we had a question about a car, we always turned to you! We will miss our weekly taco nights and fun visits we had these past years. Don't worry, we will carry on that tradition with your wonderful wife Viv of 52 years. My Big Brother, I will miss you and love you for the rest of my days, until we are together again.
"Sleep soundly and rest, Dear Brother, in God's Angel's arms tonight.
Let their wings surround you in silken strands of light.
Jesus has you by your hand, and side by side You'll see our God, and before Him, You'll both stand.
You'll be at peace, He'll see to that. For this is our God's plan.
Dear Brother, God gives to you all his Joy, Love and Glory.
So sleep and rest, Big Brother of mine, for you'll never have to worry".
I miss You so. Your little Sister, Mary Ann
