    Glenn, Shirley and Joe along with their parents lived across the highway from my family. My parents, Howard & Bessie Womack thought the world of the family. Glenn & Joe hung out with the Reynolds brothers. I was a little girl, but my parents talked fondly of them and their shenanigans. Prayers for the family.

    Stan Davis says:

    We are saddened by this loss to your family, but, we expect there will be some serious hunting and fishing in Glenn’s heaven.
    Stan & Sandee Davis and family.

    Very saddened to hear this. I was Glenn’s pest control person for a few years. I always enjoyed hearing about his hunting and fishing trips. A great guy. His family is in my prayers.
