Jack and Denice Burnside Webb, December 13, 2011 I will truly miss my good friend Glen. I can't ever remember a time when he and I talked that we didn't end up laughing. He always made sure that I got some of Margaret's "warm" cookies when he brought them around. I enjoyed the stories at the memorial service and will cherish every memory that I have as well. My prayers are with each member of the family at this time. Doyle Thompson, December 13, 2011 Hugh and I send our sympathy to the family. I know he will be missed very much.
