A loving, caring and thoughtful man whom I was blessed to have in my life for twenty five and a half years. I think of him every day and especially the holidays because he loved them. He was like a little boy on Christmas morning. I can only thank God that I had Glenn in my life for as many years that we were able to have. He fought a courageous battle from June of 2002 until November of 2009 when he was unable to fight any more.  I am glad that he was able to renew family relationships while he was able to enjoy life. Glenn, I will love you always and forever.

Glenn, here it is June 3, 2016 and I can't believe it is your birthday again. I miss you soooo much sweetie and wish every day that you were still here. I look back at the years that we had together and the only thing that I wish I could have changed is that you would still be here and not have gotten sick. But that is not in my power to do. We cannot foresee the future but I know that the years we had together were good ones. We may not have had much but to be happy with one another you do not have to have a lot. I know that most people base their lives on their possessions and not on each other. I think that we based our lives on each other. I miss you every single day.  I have some really hard days without you but I do get through because I know that one day we will be together again. I love you and Happy Birthday!

My dearest husband. How I miss you. It has been almost six and a half years but it seems like yesterday that we said goodbye. I remember when we were given the dreadful news by the doctor and we only had a few months left together knowing what the outcome was going to be. We tried to have somewhat of a normal life for those months but we knew that it was never going to be the same again. I know I promised you that I would go on but now I regret that I made that promise to you. It is so hard day to day just to get out of bed. It seems to be getting harder every day. I know that eventually we will be together again but right now that seems so far away. I love you sooo much that it hurts sometimes. Until that time, I have you in my heart and you are a part of me. I will love you ALWAYS AND FOREVER.

I was remembering that I would think Glenn and Shirley were mad at each other and then they would look at each other and laugh! They truly loved one another and I think they still do! Glenn must be proud of Shirley that she is so strong and hasn't quit life!

One special thing about Glenn was how deeply in love with Shirley he was! Another thing is that he knew everyone! There were no strangers!

Glenn loved to feed the animals and was always going for bagels for them. He was either feeding the deer or the squirrels or all the stray cats. He also loved to tease Shirley! He had a good heart!

Glenn loved life and tried to live it to the fullest. He fought a battle for seven years of which no one but the two of us will ever know what he went through every single day of his life. He was the strongest willed man I have and ever will know. My darling husband, ALWAYS AND FOREVER

Fire Alarm

Shared by Shirley Somerville on December 24, 2011

Glenn was a volunteer fireman.  When the alarm went off, he was out the door like a shot to the firehouse and always caught the first truck.  Well, we had a bluejay that I raised from a baby and she would mimic noises and sounds that she heard.  She learned to mimic Glenn's plectron, which was the original form of letting the firemen know that there was a fire.  One day he was in his office and the the bluejay started sounding off the noise like the pager.  Glenn was up like a shot heading for the front door but when he got there he realized that there was no sirens going off outside.  He turned around and stood there for a second and realized that it was the bird.  He was slightly annoyed and upset but then we laughed and thought it was funny.  After that, he would always double check his plectron to make sure that that was what he was hearing and not the bird.  He was a member of the fire company for 56 years of his life and he thought the world of his fire department.  Even up to the year before he became so seriously ill, he would go to active fires and participate where ever and whenever he was able. 

Christmas Morning

Shared by Shirley Somerville on December 19, 2011

Glenn was excited to get up Christmas morning and we would come out and he was always surprised because I would wait on Christmas Eve to put things under the tree for him that he did not know about.  We would sit and open the gifts and he was like a big child.  He enjoyed spending his last few years with his family for Christmas and watching his great niece and nephew come running down the stairs to see what Santa left them.  He loved being in Pennsylvania with Tina and Chris and would start talking about it in October hoping that they were going to ask us to come.  He liked going to Ken and Tracy's during the summer months and watching the kids in the pool.  But most of all, he loved watching all the kids on Christmas opening their gifts.  We may not have had much in the last few years of his life, but we enjoyed life together.  I MISS MY OTHER HALF.  I love you Glenn.  Always and Forever.
