Glenn From birth to death his life was marked by hurried pace, it’s known, Now came this illness with its strength to call his name it's own. As a boy, Glenn’s family poor, he struggled to survive, Then as a man, there was the drive, to build a business, make it thrive. A man with talents that abounded, often praise came not unfounded, He’d dreamed success and made it true in the company he founded. He loved his wife, his friends, his boat, on Chesapeake they’d fish and float. And on the dock he took great pleasure, spending time with friends; a treasure. Glenn was a man with a tender soul, making friends a lifetime goal. At drawing laughs he was a pro, a complex man, he was to know. So, like the stormy seas he faced and calming waves he rode, I think he’d bravely shrug it off and follow his own code. He’d dance a little turn and say, “I’m sorry friends but I can’t stay”.
