    Sheila, I was so sorry to hear that Glenn had passed away. He and I were old high school buddies and after graduation the military took us separate ways. I enjoyed his sense of humor and thought about him many times over the years. Please know that my family will be praying for you and your family in the coming days and months. God Bless.

    Dear Sheila, Brandi, Staci, and Wes- Jim and I were shocked and saddened to learn about this sad loss of your husband and father. We know this must be a most difficult thing for each of you and we share your sadness. Over the years I remember seeing Blue when he came to school and especially watching Wes play basketball. I imagine he was a loving grandfather as well and I know he will be missed in your lives. You are all in our prayers and we know God’s love is merciful and good.

    Dear Shelia, There are no words to say how much you and Blue have always meant to me. When dad called to let me know, I had to pull over and say a prayer for you, the kids, and the grandbabies. These are the times when it is hardest that I live so far away. Know that you and all of your family hold a special place in my heart whether here or in heaven where I know Blue is smiling that beautiful smile he always had down on all of us.

    Sheila, Brandi, Staci and Wes, No words can take away the pain you have right now. Remember the wonderful times you had with your dad. Sheila: I will always remember when I called you Blue always wanted to know if I had something for sell: tractor, car, truck or something and I always had fun dickering back and forth with you relaying our messages! I know you and Blue truly had a loving relationship that many people don’t get to experience! You have lots of memories that no one can take from you. You will get to share all those memories with the grandchildren. With all our love: Carolyn and Misty.

    To the family: When I heard of the passing of Glenn, it really bothered me. Glenn and I grew up in the Hildebran area, and we were not close friends, but we enjoyed a good friendship all of these years in sports, and events. In fact, Glenn went with me to Myrtle Beach when we were sixteen and we had a very good time. I will miss his smile and friendship, but I pray that God has a purpose in this situation and we will understand sometime in the future. Take care and May God bless all of you. Just a Friend, Scott Good, class of 64′
