    Dear Gwen, Lisa and Pam,
    I was so sorry to read of Glen’s passing. I had a chance to catch-up with him a couple years ago while attending a car show in Crawfordsville. He was as gregarious and friendly as ever and spoke so affectionately of his family – especially his grandchildren. Again, I am very sorry for your loss.
    Sincerely,
    Mary Huebner
