I will always have my Walter Glenn memories from our childhood. Will never forget riding on the Texas Cyclone at Astroworld. I think my screams, along with Walter's laugh could have been heard clear back to Arkansas.. God bless you cousin. My prayers to all of his Texas family.

Walter was like a brother to me. I could always count on him to lift my spirits or to give me an encouraging word. When i messed up, he was there to correct but with love. You will be sorely missed in my life and have left a huge hole in my heart. Farewell and safe travels my friend, We will meet again one day in the great Hamfest in the sky! 73 de K4WZG
