  • We are so sorry to learn today of Glenn’s passing. He will be missed. Glenn and I worked together as Escorts for several years. It was a privilege to have known Glenn and to have worked him. Glenn and I used to talk about our little poodles, Beau and Charlie; and many other things. I will miss him. May the Lord be with you, and comfort you in this loss.
