I met Glen at GRH when my mom was going for dialysis. He was part of the group that always chatted while waiting to go into the unit. He had a great sense of humour, always coming out with witty comments. My mom & I always enjoyed chatting with him & thought a lot of him. He will be greatly missed.

Our sincere sympathies to all the family. We will always know him as the man that lived in the barn with the raccoons and possibly other critters.

It was July 2000 & the Manitoba morning was already sweltering! The little Dodge 1/2 ton was loaded to the hilt and the 2 kids were buckled in. I, Colleen (Linda’ sister) was emotional about leaving for Alberta. Glen came over , checked the tarp straps on the truck box & adjusted my side mirrors explaining at the same time what I should be able to see when looking back through them! Then after my tearful goodbyes to my sisters, he was the one who came over , looked me straight in the eye and said “You can do this kid!” Drive safe and let us know when you get there! Right then I knew the 12 hour trip ahead would be ok and I would be fine!
