    Our sympathy to Glenn’s family. Glenn was my Mom’s neighbor (Joyce) in Lismore.
    We visited with him different times when we were at my Mom’s
    place. Thinking of everyone in the days ahead.

    So sorry to hear of Glenn’s passing. I’m glad we had some opportunities to get acquainted with Glenn at my sister Karen’s house. He & my husband used to like sharing Ole & Lena jokes. It was always a pleasure to spend time with him.

    I am the daughter of Joyce Erdman, Glens neighbor in Lismore…so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. I would talk to Glen when visiting my Mom if he was outside or if we were sitting outside. He was a good guy and mom enjoyed him as a neighbor, he would help her out if she needed which was very appreciated. Sending prayers to the whole family for comfort at this time.
