Dear Mim:
My very deepest sympathy to you on Glenn’s passing.  I got to know Glenn at Valleybrook and always enjoyed chatting with him.  I will miss seeing him shining up his vehicles!  He is now pain-free and resting in the arms of Jesus.

With Sympathy In the Loss of Your Loved One. Memories are more than thoughts of the past…
for the love that they capture brings joy that will last. May you find comford recalling the times
you had together the closeness that came from caring and sharing, the long talks and laughter,
the love in your hearts. May these memories be as real now as they were in those moments…
may they always be yours to cherish. Deepest Sympathy My Condolence to the Barns family. John H Flory3
