Thanks for the memories Glenn!My son Chad, who is now 31 and serving in the Army in Kuwait, and I were invited to the father-son fishing trip in 1989, when Chad was only 8. Thru true "beginner's luck", Chad won first place - he was so excited with his trophy. Then, the next year, Glenn surprised us with a mount of the fish - still hanging on Chad's wall today! Made a fisherman of him for life! This past summer before Chad deployed, we went fishing at a local farm pond and during our time recalled Glenn's fishing trip. I remember the pride Glenn had in showing folks his ablum that he kept over the years of the boys on his trips and how they came back for so many years.What he gave so many of us was priceless and so generous.God rest his soul and comfort his family during this time. He will be missed.Mike
