    Uncle Glen was my favorite Uncle. He was always kind and showed me how a man could love his wife and family. I’ll always remember on one of Aunt Elaine and his anniversary I was visiting them Uncle Glen had surprised Aunt Elaine with One of the first microwaves that ever came out at that time. The joy and excitement and love they had for each other made me want that when I grew up. So glad to have known him.
