So many wonderful years of memories with Glenn as a big part of our Lake Family. Always doing something to fix things and napping on the front deck and keeping an eye on the little ones at the beach. Will miss seeing the fishing boat leave the pier at full throttle. Yep, best memories ever. Rest well, our dear Glenn...It is well deserved. We will miss you dearly.
Love to all of you. Lisa
