    Sue, you and your family are in our prayers. I know Mom said she was coming to visit before Glen passed. I am so sorry we missed the opportunity to see Glen before he passed. We are so sorry. We love both you and Glen. He was such a good man. God bless you and your family in this difficult time. Hugs and prayers. The Cates family.
