I just still can't believe you're gone. The plans Darryl and I had to be out in Colorado more...seem so useless now...you were such a big part of them. I will have to learn how to remember all the wonderful times we had with you. How you always said, in typical Glen fashion, Oh Caaaarolyn, Caaaarolyn, Carrlyn...then a big laugh...when I was worrying about the kids sledding down Conifer mountain, or you and Darryl off somewhere-suspicious-ha! Or when I teased you and called you "Wee-Wee"...ya you really loved that. Or when you tried sooo to teach me cribbage. I wish we could have lived closer...then maybe we would have realized that you were not doing as well as you led on. You were such a strong, proud man. I feel sooo for your adorable kids. Desarie and Dan have grown into such amazing young adults. I know how very proud you were of them, you mentioned it every single time we talked on the phone. You will be so very missed Glen. My heart aches for your family...and for Darryl as he had so many thoughts of you and him eventually exploring the mountains and the "trout" streams - ha! yes Turtle Lake...another great memory...need I say more...no need...no need at all. You found it buddy, you found it.

Glen was good man. I worked with him a few years ago and he was a hard worker. He talked about his son and daughter in such a loving way. He was a lot of fun and a good person. May he rest in peace.

I don't know what to say, So many memories, yet not enough. Had plans for many more. Life seems so unfair sometimes. A great guy and a very proud father, as he should be. You did good bud. Gonna miss you big-time.

~ Darryl Dillon - April 15, 2013

Glen, you will be missed always. Your Mother and I were Blessed to have you and the other as well and we will have special memories of all of you. At this time the memories of you will stand out more. I am finding that many of the tears are of sadness are becoming fewer and now I find them happening when I think of the fun times we did have. I have met several of you friends here in Pine, what a wonder warm feeling I get when I hear them say what a wonderful friend you have been and how you were always so willing to help others because you wanted to do it.You are with your Baby Sister who was interned in Stillwater Mn. You ave been a very wonderful Son to Me and your Mother and you will be missed. Until we meet again Son, we will remember the good times and will rejoice in those times always, Your Mother and I Love You Glen.

I was Glen's only Auntie. I always had a special place in my heart for him.
I remember many summers when he would come and stay with Shelly and
I and we would go for bike rides and to the beach for the day. As a teenager he was a 'lost soul' but when he moved to Colorado, he always felt like he was home. He had two wonderful children, whom he was very proud of. I hadn't seen Glen since Desi's graduation, but I was blessed with a call from him about 6 weeks ago. We talked for over an hour and I was able to tell him I loved him. We told each other we would talk every couple of months. I know one-day when my phone rings and no one is there---it will be Glen calling from Heaven. Saying Auntie Joanie, "I love you" and I will say it back and know he is Resting In Peace knowing his children and family are doing well.

Cousin Glen, I'm your only cousin and I'm honored to say that. We were close in age so we were good friends. I remember countless times in the summer visiting you in Wisconsin, swimming, family gatherings, playing pool and ping pong and aggravation at Grandma and Grandpa's for the holidays. I enjoyed going to visit you with my friends/husband in Colorado. I remember some fun times with little Desi and thinking what a great daughter she was and having pride of how she has turned out and the accomplishments she has made. I regret not being able to get to know Daniel as much from a far. I am also honored to be Desi's god mother and although I'm not near you all often I think of you all and have pride on Desi's accomplishments and share joy for her to start a new journey with her new expanded family. I wish you peace Glen. I recall skiing with you at Copper Mountain when my friend Andrea and I visited you and Dev and Des and we had a blast. I think the last time we visited was at Desi's graduation for high school as college I ended up visiting her at college instead a month before graduation so I didn't make that graduation. I only wished I knew you were not well, it's frustrating from a far not knowing and being involved. Peace to you and also to all of the family, especially Daniel, Desi and her son and other family and friends there who were with you through the years you resided there in Colorado. We all in MN plan to have a family service here in memory and to honor your life! P.S. I wish you as much Old Dutch Potato Chips as possible in heaven!

My beautiful father... you were the most amazing man and I love you with all my heart. I am going to and already do miss you more than you know. You always knew how to be my rock...I don't care how often I was able to see you because I know that all you really wanted was to be with me and Daniel. I promise I will carry you with me in my heart everywhere I go. I love you daddy and I will always and forever be your little girl. I will never forget our intense chess games, our family game nights, sledding down conifer mountain... and so much more! I love you dad and I am now trying to be strong and be your rock! Rest in peace I LOVE YOU!
