Glenn I accepted you for who you were and loved you dearly. I am in shock in hearing of your death. I remember the little boy I use to take care of while his mother and daddy worked. I am sorry I did not respond to the last email I received from you asking my to call you. At the time I was having all kind of health problems and just never got around to it. Love you and will never forget you Aunt Opal
