    What a character Bro Glover was….and a talented singer. So glad I got to know he and Sis Glover and have them as church family the last number of years. I know he is rejoicing…
    Love and prayers for his children, grandchildren, and entire family.

    Pappy Glover, It was a true honor to know you. Thank you for all the prayers for me and mine and words of encouragement through the years. You have now taken your final step on the Jericho Road and entered Heaven’s Gate, and I know you’re the best bass singer there! We’ll see you soon!
    My thoughts & prayers are with Jeanetta, David, Geina & all the family. May you feel God’s comfort and peace always.

    I worked with your Mom many years in banking.
    When Ray and Ouida moved to Silsbee
    He often came to the Vidor Branch,
    Always stopped by my office to say hi
    And have a story to tell. He and Ouida
    Loved to talk about (as he said the kids
    And grandkids)
    May God grant comfort now and the time ahead.

    Dee Phillips says:

    Many prayers for the entire Glover family. Ray Glover was known as one of the greatest bass singers that enjoyed singing as much as everyone enjoyed hearing him sing. May God comfort you all with His peace.
