    Glen was a wonderful man, friend, and neighbor. Can’t say enough good things about him, just a joy to be around. I will miss our long evening storytellings and conversations on the back patio.
    You will be greatly missed my friend, rest in peace Glen.

    Glen, Rest In Peace ole friend!
    He carried his load for a long time and helped many others along the way!
    Glen and I worked for the same Company for a long time and I would like to say that I had a little “pull” that brought him back to Oklahoma.
    But after meeting Jan, and a good part of his of his family, I realized that I was only a “tool” to help him return to the land that he loved so much!
    I know he will be missed!
