Glen suffered many obstacles in his life, including loss of both lower limbs, a massive stroke paralyzing his left side, and was still able to remain at home and to get in and out of his bed and wheelchair.

I have known Glen for many years i baby sat for him and his twin a couple of times he was a hand full sometimes but if you ask him to help you do something he would help R-I-P and enjoy your new life in heaven.
Darlene, sorry for your loss. I am going to a family funeral and won't be able to come. My prayers are with your family.
