Glen was indeed a businessman of great integrity and he was dedicated to his business. So sorry I didn’t make it to his wake, so sad for his family. I look forward to continuing the same great business relationship with his family.

We were best friends in school in Ticonderoga, lost track of each other as we got older. Meant to stop at your place and say hello when I moved to Peru, but never got there. Now I wish I would have taken the time. You are a good guy Rick, I will miss those good times.
