Beth,

I don't know whether you will remember me (we were friends at the time you met Glenn), but please know that my heart aches for you, your daughter, and Glenn's family and friends. I remember Glenn was such a good man, and recall you telling me after you met that you weren't going to let him get away. You both were truly blessed to have found one another, and although I never knew your daughter, I know she must be a very special person to have been raised by a man such as her dad. You are in my prayers as you go forward in your lives without Glenn. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

Dearest Beth & Betsy,

I was stunned to read of our loss of Glenn in the Tribune last night. I told Ron on my nightly call and he was shocked and doubly sad that he missed connecting with all of you when he was here last winter. He will be here this month and we will plan to get together.

With heavy hearts we send our love and sympathy, Kay & Ron

Beth -

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It's been years since I visited you guys. One thing I do recall is the love you had for Glenn and Betsy. I know a huge void exists now and I would encourage you to remember all the good times. I am sure Glenn will be watching over you and Betsy for all the days of your lives.

All my love to you,
Barb

Dear sweet Beth,

I just read in the NW College paper of Glen's death. I am so very sorry for your lose and pray for the peace of God for you and your daughter and family this Christmas. I recall well when you and Glen first met and how much you liked him-fun times those days. I just knew Glen was a good man for you. I still remeber when he let me keep my horses on his property- he was a very giving man. Im still here in Victor, Montana, for now. Take care my friend, and know that I pray for you. Love, Terri
