I know the family from long ago, praying for Glenn and his family. This is sensless and is just another example of how our world is following the evil forces that want to take over, we need to wake up and see that we need Jesus Christ to guide us and show us the ways to true happiness, peace, and contentment.

Glen sold my house in only 3 days and for more than the asking price. I have known him to always be a gentleman ans someone that give sback to the community in many ways. I am glad he will recover, but what a sad state of affairs! I wish him a speedy return to 100%
