    God’s plan was to reunite you with Penny and John though so early it seems. All those whose lives you touched are richer. You will be missed. Your family is in my thoughts.

    Glenn always had a warm smile growing up. Layna, you and your boys are in my thoughts and prayers. May God carry you through this difficult time. Glenn is in Heaven and you will join him someday according to God’s plan. We were all very blessed to have known him. Remember the butterfly, when you see a butterfly lingering it is a reminder that Glenn is still watching over you and your boys in spirit.

    Dear Brother,

    You touched so many lives in a positive way. You were a wonderful husband,father,and mentor to so many boys through scouting. I know your family loved you beyond any bounds. The wisdom, care, and joy that you shared with your sons and the other boys you worked with will live on as they grow into the fine men I know they will become. We will all miss you greatly as we struggle to fill the void that has been left by your passing. My peace comes from knowing that you believed in Christ as your personal savior and that you are with him now. You were the rock that I could always lean on when needed and I know I will miss you immensely.

    Your little brother,
    Curtis

    A good employee, peer and friend. He was tireless in his dedication to his trade and family. Enthusiastic when in the service of others and always willing to lend a hand when the need arose. I will miss seeing his face on a daily basis and will be forever thankful for the time that I knew him. As a fellow Scouter we would often share war stories and ideas of how to make our troops/packs better. He always put his family first and was not afraid to speak up when he felt something wasn’t right. I could always count on him for an opinion. Irreplaceable. We’ll miss you buddy.
