    Danny, Steve and Vivian,
    I’m sorry to hear about Glen. I always enjoyed our conversations and his sense of humor and how much he loved “Dudley” the dog. Vivian, I’m so glad we ran into each other at the Mexican restaurant this past year. My kids would look to see if the two of you were there and would ask about who I was hugging! My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Jamie Sinclair (Rose)

    To the Freeman family,

    All of our prayers for you and yours that you may be comforted at this time. Mr. Freeman was a wonderful person who took very good care of my aging mother when her also aging car had issues. I will never forget his kindness to her.

    God bless.

    Steve, Stephanie, Vivian and family…..we are so sorry to hear of Glen’s passing. We hope you find peace and comfort, reminiscing about good memories of time spent with Glen.
    He always was so nice and welcoming when we would visit either at the shop or out at the house, back in our teenage years.
