Keith & Mary Beth, I had just heard about the passing of Glen. My prayers and condolences to everyone on the loss of this long time prominent Westlake resident. Glen was such a mainstay and contributor to the stability of the community during some of the hectic growing years. Another person from a great era has left us. God Bless.

We just heard of Glen's passing. We respected Glen for his progressive professional ideas in funeral service. The Bogners and Jenkins families always had a great relationship. Our sympathy to you.

Was sorry to see of Glen's passing. I remember him and your mom fondly. Glen's laugh was infectious and genuine. Hope you all are doing as well as possible and enjoying your kids and grand kids.

Dear Deacon Keith and Marybeth, Geoff and I are holding you close to our hearts in thought and prayer. Losing a parent, no matter what age, is very sad and difficult. Please know we grieve with you. Glen is now in the loving Hands of our Dear Lord Jesus.

Bonnie, Parker and Family,

We are sad to hear of Glen's passing. He and Joan were amazing people who showed their love by deed and action. We are blessed to have known them on this journey. To Sara he will always be Grampa Glen.

With much love,
Carol and Ken
